There are several projects that provide architecture-independent access to the hardware clocks, PAPI is one. Although this is a relatively minor part of LTT-ng, it would presumably make sense if there is an agreed way to do this - or, perhaps if one project is already installed, any subsequent project should be configurable to use that as the access point. The problem with multiple methods of accessing the same data is that if you use multiple profilers, they may give inconsistent and incompatible results.
