Subject: [PATCH v2 00/10] powerpc/hv-24x7: Reorganize single_24x7_request()
Date: Mon, 30 Mar 2015 18:53:37 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1427766828-771-1-git-send-email-sukadev@linux.vnet.ibm.com> (raw)

We currently issue a new hcall for to retrieve the value of each 24x7
counter that we want to read.  However, the H_GET_24x7_DATA hcall can
retrieve several counters in a single call, which would be useful in
getting a more consistent snapshot of the system.

Reorganize the code that prepares a 24x7 hcall request, submits it and
processes the result to allow reading seveal counters at once. We still
submit a fresh hcall for each event for now. A follow-on patch-set will
build on this to submit multiple perf_events in a single hcall.

Thanks to Peter Zijlstra for his input.

Changelog[v2]
	- Split independent changes in patch 2 into patch 3.
	- Minor changes to pr_err() (Patch 4).
	- Move whitespace changes to separate patch (Patch  8).
	- Minor function renames (Patch 10).
