On the other hand, it will make maintaining this subpackage much harder.
Unless there's nothing to maintain here. I wonder if this code would be
extracted from kernel.git in some future, as it's not tightly bound to
the kernel (only it's build-ids). Well, no real difference to me since
using own kernels, consider above only as a bunch of hints.
BTW perf top -e ... is a must-have for complex multi-core setup to hount
for bottlenecks, it's one of the basic tools and this shows how amateur
(or obsoleted) PLD has become... sad.
