Whilst having no opinion on the matter, I can't help noticing that Ingo
said its "main focus is on measuring/profilig user-space apps" (sic), so
I think its use is not for kernel purposes. Coupled with Christoph's
observation that the tool is nowhere close to the hardware, it appears
neither of your two criteria apply to this.
