Subject[PATCH 1/2] oprofile: introduce module_param oprofile.cpu_type
Date
This patch removes module_param oprofile.force_arch_perfmon and
introduces oprofile.cpu_type=archperfmon instead. This new parameter
can be reused for other models and architectures.

Currently only archperfmon is supported.
