This is the outcome from the thread:
Subject: [PATCH] tracing, perf: add more power related events

-> The interfaces won't be fix. There may be a library at some time
   which may abstract versions or similar.

-> ARM people want to make use of several power event tracepoints and
   it came out they are wrongly defined, in a rather unusable way.
   Better fix and clean this up now, before more and more tools depend
   on them.

-> The perf userspace cleanups show that it's rather easy for userspace
   to adapt to the new trace ponts.

Ingo: This is against latest Linus master branch, can you push these if
      Jean is fine with them.
