SubjectRe: [PATCH 0/3] ARM Coresight: Enhance ETM tracing control
Hi all,

First, please excuse me for these misformatted patches that my email
client messed up. Next time I will use git send-email. The 3 patches
can be found on;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/etm_with_addr_and_pid

Greg: you're right, sysfs is a questionable place for tracing/debug
code. Debugfs or /dev entries would be the right place.

Though, the only support for ETM in Linux is there, and currently very
limited because tracing options such as address and pid are not
configurable. The code I propose would make it usable, until someone
with time (and more experience than me ;)) moves it out from sysfs.
