perf: Tidy up after the big rename
Ingo Molnar [Mon, 21 Sep 2009 10:20:38 +0000 (12:20 +0200)]
 - provide compatibility Kconfig entry for existing PERF_COUNTERS .config's

 - provide courtesy copy of old perf_counter.h, for user-space projects

 - small indentation fixups

 - fix up MAINTAINERS

 - fix small x86 printout fallout

 - fix up small PowerPC comment fallout (use 'counter' as in register)
