    Pull perf changes from Ingo Molnar:
     "There are lots of improvements, the biggest changes are:
    
      Main kernel side changes:
    
       - Improve uprobes performance by adding 'pre-filtering' support, by
         Oleg Nesterov.
    
       - Make some POWER7 events available in sysfs, equivalent to what was
         done on x86, from Sukadev Bhattiprolu.
    
       - tracing updates by Steve Rostedt - mostly misc fixes and smaller
         improvements.
    
       - Use perf/event tracing to report PCI Express advanced errors, by
         Tony Luck.
    
       - Enable northbridge performance counters on AMD family 15h, by Jacob
         Shin.
    
       - This tracing commit:
    
            tracing: Remove the extra 4 bytes of padding in events
    
         changes the ABI.  All involved parties (PowerTop in particular)
         seem to agree that it's safe to do now with the introduction of
         libtraceevent, but the devil is in the details ...
    
      Main tooling side changes:
    
       - Add 'event group view', from Namyung Kim:
    
         To use it, 'perf record' should group events when recording.  And
         then perf report parses the saved group relation from file header
         and prints them together if --group option is provided.  You can
         use the 'perf evlist' command to see event group information:
    
            $ perf record -e '{ref-cycles,cycles}' noploop 1
            [ perf record: Woken up 2 times to write data ]
            [ perf record: Captured and wrote 0.385 MB perf.data (~16807 samples) ]
    
            $ perf evlist --group
            {ref-cycles,cycles}
    
         With this example, default perf report will show you each event
         separately.
    
         You can use --group option to enable event group view:
    
            $ perf report --group
            ...
            # group: {ref-cycles,cycles}
            # ========
            # Samples: 7K of event 'anon group { ref-cycles, cycles }'
            # Event count (approx.): 6876107743
            #
            #         Overhead  Command      Shared Object                      Symbol
            # ................  .......  .................  ..........................

         As you can see the Overhead column now contains both of ref-cycles
         and cycles and header line shows group information also - 'anon
         group { ref-cycles, cycles }'.  The output is sorted by period of
         group leader first.
    
       - Initial GTK+ annotate browser, from Namhyung Kim.
    
       - Add option for runtime switching perf data file in perf report,
         just press 's' and a menu with the valid files found in the current
         directory will be presented, from Feng Tang.
    
       - Add support to display whole group data for raw columns, from Jiri
         Olsa.
    
       - Add per processor socket count aggregation in perf stat, from
         Stephane Eranian.
    
       - Add interval printing in 'perf stat', from Stephane Eranian.
    
       - 'perf test' improvements
    
       - Add support for wildcards in tracepoint system name, from Jiri
         Olsa.
    
       - Add anonymous huge page recognition, from Joshua Zhu.
    
       - perf build-id cache now can show DSOs present in a perf.data file
         that are not in the cache, to integrate with build-id servers being
         put in place by organizations such as Fedora.
    
       - perf top now shares more of the evsel config/creation routines with
         'record', paving the way for further integration like 'top'
         snapshots, etc.
    
       - perf top now supports DWARF callchains.
    
       - Fix mmap limitations on 32-bit, fix from David Miller.
    
       - 'perf bench numa mem' NUMA performance measurement suite
    
       - ... and lots of fixes, performance improvements, cleanups and other
         improvements I failed to list - see the shortlog and git log for
         details."
