Subject[PATCH 13/16] perf, persistent: Implementing a persistent pmu
Date
From: Robert Richter <robert.richter@calxeda.com>

We want to use the kernel's pmu design to later expose persistent
events via sysfs to userland. Initially implement a persistent pmu.

The format syntax is introduced allowing to set bits anywhere in
struct perf_event_attr. This is used in this case to set the
persistent flag (attr5:23). The syntax is attr<num> where num is the
index of the u64 array in struct perf_event_attr. Otherwise syntax is
same as for config<num>.

Patches that implement this functionality for perf tools are sent in a
separate patchset.
