perf_events: Report the MMAP pgoff value in bytes
Peter Zijlstra [Fri, 26 Feb 2010 09:33:41 +0000 (10:33 +0100)]
DaveM reported that currently perf interprets the pgoff value reported by
the MMAP events as a byte range, but the kernel reports it as a page
offset.

Since its broken (and unusable) anyway, change the kernel behaviour (ABI)
to report bytes indeed, avoiding the need for userspace to deal with
PAGE_SIZE things.
