I was looking for something more simple,
like kernel-based statistical hit profiling – for example: a timer
interrupt that fires at some regular rate, collects the current Program Counter
value, bucket-izes that data and does a symbol lookup
on those buckets when queried. I’ll take a look at LTT to see if I can
get it to work for my purposes.
I sent an email to pcs.support
previously, and Gerado told me there was no patch
available. I’ll check with them again.

There is the LTT, Linux
Trace Toolkit, which can be used for profiling.
If you send email to firstname.lastname@example.org,
they should be able to
get you the files...

Is there a kernel profile patch that anyone is aware of for
the AMD (Alchemy) part Au1000/Au1500? If not, can anyone provide info on a good
starting point to start a port?
