config OPROFILE
tristate "OProfile system profiling (EXPERIMENTAL)"
depends on PROFILING
depends on HAVE_OPROFILE
depends on TRACING_SUPPORT
select TRACING
select RING_BUFFER
help
OProfile is a profiling system capable of profiling the
whole system, include the kernel, kernel modules, libraries,
and applications.
If unsure, say N.
config OPROFILE_IBS
bool "OProfile AMD IBS support (EXPERIMENTAL)"
default n
depends on OPROFILE && SMP && X86
help
Instruction-Based Sampling (IBS) is a new profiling
technique that provides rich, precise program performance
information. IBS is introduced by AMD Family10h processors
(AMD Opteron Quad-Core processor "Barcelona") to overcome
the limitations of conventional performance counter
sampling.
If unsure, say N.
config HAVE_OPROFILE
bool
config KPROBES
bool "Kprobes"
depends on KALLSYMS && MODULES
depends on HAVE_KPROBES
help
Kprobes allows you to trap at almost any kernel address and
execute a callback function. register_kprobe() establishes
a probepoint and specifies the callback. Kprobes is useful
for kernel debugging, non-intrusive instrumentation and testing.
If in doubt, say "N".
config HAVE_EFFICIENT_UNALIGNED_ACCESS
bool
help
Some architectures are unable to perform unaligned accesses
without the use of get_unaligned/put_unaligned. Others are
unable to perform such accesses efficiently (e.g. trap on
unaligned access and require fixing it up in the exception
handler.)
This symbol should be selected by an architecture if it can
perform unaligned accesses efficiently to allow different
code paths to be selected for these cases. Some network
drivers, for example, could opt to not fix up alignment
problems with received packets if doing so would not help
much.
See Documentation/unaligned-memory-access.txt for more
information on the topic of unaligned memory accesses.

# An arch should select this if it provides all these things:
#
# task_pt_regs() in asm/processor.h or asm/ptrace.h
# arch_has_single_step() if there is hardware single-step support
# arch_has_block_step() if there is hardware block-step support
# asm/syscall.h supplying asm-generic/syscall.h interface
# linux/regset.h user_regset interfaces
# CORE_DUMP_USE_REGSET #define'd in linux/elf.h
# TIF_SYSCALL_TRACE calls tracehook_report_syscall_{entry,exit}
# TIF_NOTIFY_RESUME calls tracehook_notify_resume()
# signal delivery calls tracehook_signal_handler()

help
The <linux/clk.h> calls support software clock gating and
thus are a key power management tool on many systems.
