NOTE:
	- tprof driver currently only supports pentium4 (netburst) processors.
	- it samples program counters on every PMIs.
	- it's currently hardcoded to use global_power_events events.
	  for details, see x86/x86/tprof_pmi.c and intel's processor manuals.

usage:

0. set SIZEOF_PTR environment variable, which is used by tpfmt.sh and tpann.sh.
   if not set, SIZEOF_PTR=4 is assumed.

1. add a line to your kernel config.

	pseudo-device	tprof

2. create a device special file.

	# mknod /dev/tprof c 191 0

3. run the tprof command.

	# tprof -o /tmp/foo sleep 1

	tprof statistics:
		sample 57
		overflow 0
		buf 3
		emptybuf 3
		dropbuf 0
		dropbuf_sample 0

4. format the result.
   the first line in the following example means that 11 samples have been
   taken at 0xc0396c36, whose symbolic name is lapic_gettick+0x6.

	# sh ./tpfmt.sh < /tmp/foo

	1       c042f66a        _atomic_swap_32+0xa

5. tpann.sh is another formatter.  it outputs "objdump -d" with numbers of
   samples for each addresses.

	# tprof -o /tmp/bar sleep 100
	# sh ./tpann.sh < /tmp/bar
