Subject: [PATCH 0/9] KVM in-guest performance monitoring
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Thursday 3rd November 2011 12:31:29 UTC (over 4 years ago)
This patchset exposes an emulated version 2 architectural performance
monitoring unit to KVM guests.  The PMU is emulated using perf_events,
so the host kernel can multiplex host-wide, host-user, and the
guest on available resources.

The patches should be applied on top of KVM patches from the patch series
"[PATCH v2 0/9] perf support for x86 guest/host-only bits" [1]

If you want to try running perf in a guest you need to apply the patch
below to qemu-kvm and use -cpu host on qemu command line. But DO NOT
TRY those patches without applying [2][3] to the host kernel first.
Don't tell me I didn't warn you!

Avi Kivity (8):
  KVM: Expose kvm_lapic_local_deliver()
  KVM: Expose a version 2 architectural PMU to a guests
  KVM: Add generic RDPMC support
  KVM: SVM: Intercept RDPMC
  KVM: VMX: Intercept RDPMC
  KVM: Expose the architectural performance monitoring CPUID leaf
  KVM: x86 emulator: fix RDPMC privilege check
  KVM: x86 emulator: implement RDPMC (0F 33)

Gleb Natapov (1):
  perf: expose perf capability to other modules.
