Subject[PATCH v6 0/7] perf, intel: Add support for PEBS output to Intel PT
Date
Hi Peter,

Seventh attempt at the PEBS-via-PT feature. The previous ones were [1], [2],
[3], [4], [5], [6]. This one finalizes the 'aux_output' naming in the code.

The PEBS feature: output to Intel PT stream instead of the DS area. It's
theoretically useful in virtualized environments, where DS area can't be
used. It's also good for those who are interested in instruction trace for
context of the PEBS events. As PEBS goes, it can provide LBR context with
all the branch-related information that PT doesn't provide at the moment.

PEBS records are packetized in the PT stream, so instead of extracting
them in the PMI, we leave it to the perf tool, because real time PT
decoding is not practical.
