[PATCH] oprofile: report anonymous region samples
John Levon [Fri, 24 Jun 2005 05:02:47 +0000 (22:02 -0700)]
The below patch passes samples from anonymous regions to userspace instead
of just dropping them.  This provides the support needed for reporting
anonymous-region code samples (today: basic accumulated results; later:
Java and other dynamically compiled code).

As this changes the format, an upgrade to the just-released 0.9 release of
the userspace tools is required.

This patch is based upon an earlier one by Will Cohen <wcohen@redhat.com>
