Subject[PATCH 0/3] perf latency command

What follows is a set of three patches against tip/master that
implement a 'latency' sub-command for perf. You can also get it
by fetching the perf-latency-master branch from:


The 'perf latency' command is an interface for managing the
hwlat_detector kernel module via its debufs interface. The kernel
module polls the TSC looking for gaps and when a gap exceeding a
specified threshold is detected, a timestamp and the gap value (in
microseconds) is printed to stdout.

The command line arguments are a sample interval (--window), sample
duration within that window (--width), a duration for the length of
time the test should run (--duration) and a threshold (--threshold)
above which is considered a hardware latency.
