Subject[PATCH 0/4] perf tools: Add support for IBS
This patch series adds perf tool support for IBS. It is related to the
kernel patches I sent out recently.

IBS is implemented using dynamic pmu allocation. Thus, esp. event
selection and sample encoding requires handling of dynamically
generated pmu identifiers that can be queried in sysfs. For ibs there
exists 2 pmus:


Lin's patch implements a new syntax to specify events of dynamically
allocated pmus. This can be used to specify ibs events for perf
record, etc., for example:

perf record -e ibs_op:r0 -c 100000 -R -a <command>
perf record -e ibs_fetch:r0 -c 100000 -R -a <command>

With patch #2 dynamically generated pmu mappings are added to the header. This information is required to decode samples and
to find the originating pmu it is comming from. Since the information
in sysfs may change we need to store it in the header.

A generic perl handler is added to process IBS events with perf
script. There was only support for tracepoints. The following perf
script commands can be used to collect and display IBS samples:

perf script ibs ibs_op <command>
perf script ibs ibs_fetch <command>
perf script record ibs ibs_op -c 500000 <command>
perf script report ibs
perf script record ibs ibs_op -c 500000 <command> | perf script report ibs


Lin Ming (1):
perf tool: Parse general/raw events from sysfs

Robert Richter (3):
perf tools: Add pmu mappings to header information
perf script: Add generic perl handler to process events
perf script: Add script to collect and display IBS samples
