perf_counter: Set the CONFIG_PERF_COUNTERS default to y if CONFIG_PROFILING=y
Ingo Molnar [Mon, 29 Jun 2009 08:40:20 +0000 (10:40 +0200)]
If user has already enabled profiling support in the kernel
(for oprofile, old-style profiling of ftrace) then offer up
perfcounters with a y default in interactive kconfig sessions.

Still keep it off by default otherwise.
