Hi Robert,

Thanks for taking the time to look at this.

Sorry, I was being braindead and thought oprofile_arch_exit might be
called via oprofile_exit. As it happens, this is only called because of
module_exit so we know that initialisation will have completed.

In light of this and your comments, I've simplified the code. Once
people are happy with it, I'll post it as a couple of patches:
