Subject[PATCH 05/11] perf: New PERF_EVENT_IOC_INJECT ioctl
Date
The PERF_EVENT_IOC_INJECT perf event ioctl can be used to inject
events, if the corresponding pmu and event supports it.

On trace events, it will call the inject callback, usually reserved
for events that need to catch up with the user.
