Subject[PATCH] perf, x86: Enabled PEBS event to be exported in a raw format
Date
From: Andi Kleen <ak@linux.intel.com>

Add support for reporting PEBS records in a raw format that can
be then parsed by perf script.

This is roughly similar to the existing AMD IBS support.

This is mainly for advanced users and to experiment with
new usages. Widespread PEBS usages are expected to get higher
level interfaces over time, like the existing "precise ip" support.

[Small fix of adding "data.raw = &raw;", thanks to Andi, with this
patch I can test my perf script with pebs samples. - Feng]
