Hi,
  A few days ago someone (sorry, I deleted the mail...) was asking about
support for MIPS performance counters.  Some time ago I ported Mikael
Pettersson's perfctr (http://www.csd.uu.se/~mikpe/linux/perfctr)
driver to 2.2.12 and used that to profile programs running on an
RM7000.  This driver has a reasonably generic interface and supports per
process profiling.
 Unless anyone can suggest a better starting point I'll have a look at
putting this into 2.4.14.

        Regards
                Chris
