perf_counter: Add mmap event hooks to mprotect()
Peter Zijlstra [Mon, 8 Jun 2009 18:11:57 +0000 (21:11 +0300)]
Some JIT compilers allocate memory for generated code with
posix_memalign() + mprotect() so we need to hook into mprotect()
to make sure 'perf' is aware that we're executing code in
anonymous memory.

[ penberg@cs.helsinki.fi: move the hook to sys_mprotect() ]
