Hi,

  I use the oprofile to measured the performance of my application, there something wrong to use the oprofile.ko as following in yocto "dylan":

  It's known issue or bug ?

root@imx6qsabresd:~# opcontrol --start --separate=lib --no-vmlinux -c 5

oprofile: using arm/armv7-ca9

ATTENTION: Use of opcontrol is discouraged.  Please see the man page for operf.

Detected stale lock file. Removing.

Using default event: CPU_CYCLES:100000:0:1:1

Using 2.6+ OProfile kernel interface.

Using log file /var/lib/oprofile/samples/oprofiled.log

Daemon started.

Last information I got on this issue is that it´s documented on ERR006259 (http://cache.freescale.com/files/32bit/doc/errata/IMX6DQCE.pdf?fpsp=1&WT_TYPE=Errata&WT_VENDOR=FREES...)

And there is one "known workaround"

I am getting the same error.  I cross compiled oprofile 0.9.8 and upon running operf, I get this crash:

Disabling IRQ #126

My hardware is SabreSD with i.MX6Q and 4.0.0 Linux BSP.

I was really hoping to profile my app to see where I need to optimize.  Is there a fix/workaround for this? 

Please advise.

This bug is described here: [PATCH 0/9] ARM perf updates for 3.7. I made a kernel patch on file "arch/arm/plat-mxc/devices/platform-imx-pmu.c".

Be carefull, this patch doesn't solve the heart of the problem: "We have only one interrupt for 4 core and fo 4 PMU.".  The measures may be imprecise!!
