SubjectRE: [PATCH 0/26] oprofile: Performance counter multiplexing

The user-space support is currently in AMD CodeAnalyst utility. I am
working on the more generic user-space support (non-AMD specific) and
will send the patches to OProfile for review.

I would suggest to drop that CONFIG and have the code unconditional.
It's not a lot code and should be always available.

Will do more detailed review later and will look at Intel P6 support.

Where's the userland support for this?
