You use CONFIG_HW_PERF_EVENTS while CONFIG_PERF_EVENTS in oprofile.h.

We need empty function stubs for all this functions for the
!CONFIG_PERF_EVENTS case returning -ENODEV or so. Otherwise
compliation will fail for it.

For arm this does not happen because of #ifdefs, but for sh.

Again, please first change the code and then move it without
functional changes, one patch each.

Thanks,
