It is for perf - i'm interested in event tracing. I used the event
tracing system like it is described in Documentation/trace/events.txt.
In addition i wrote a program which uses syscall(__NR_perf_counter_open,
... ) to trace power events. But the result is the same -
power:power_end events are reported, power:power_start events not.
