After looking through the code I just had some questions, perhaps you have
thought about this longer than me, what to do with the reservation code
(just remove it I assume and let perf_events _be_ the only code that
handles perf events) and what to do with some of the cpu quirks as noted
in perfctr-watchdog.c (notable some of the Intel errata for the Core
chipsets).

Cheers,
Don
