Subject:  [PATCH] perf_counter: extensible perf_counter_attr
Date:  Mon, 08 Jun 2009 19:25:41 +0200
Message-ID:  <1244481941.13761.9119.camel@twins>
Cc:  Paul Mackerras <paulus@samba.org>, Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@ghostprotocols.net>, Thomas Gleixner <tglx@linutronix.de>, Corey Ashford <cjashfor@linux.vnet.ibm.com>, linux-kernel <linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org>
Archive-link:  Article

Allow extending the perf_counter_attr structure by linking extended
structures to it.

Also, should we grow the directly reserved space in the structure a
little more?
