Subject: [PATCH V2 0/4] perf: Add support for hardware breakpoint address masks
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Tuesday 23rd April 2013 07:57:01 UTC (over 3 years ago)
The following patchset adds address masks to existing perf hardware
breakpoint mechanism to allow trapping on an address range (currently
only single address) on supported architectures.

perf uapi is updated, x86 AMD implementation (for AMD Family 16h and
beyond) is provided, and perf tool has been extended to do:

  $ perf stat -e mem:0x1000/0xf:w a.out
                            ^^^
                            "don't care" bit mask

  which will count writes to [0x1000 ~ 0x1010)

V2:
Per Oleg's suggestions:
* Moved testing of bp_addr_mask to validate_hw_breakpoint()
* Changed perf tool syntax to mem:[/addr_mask][:access]
