i use kernel version 184.108.40.206 (x86-64, Core 2 Duo) and the perf events
to track frequency and c states of my cpu. But if i want to trace
power:power_start events, it does not work. After typing
echo "power:power_start" | sudo tee set_event
on the console, the trace doesn't contain such events.
power:power_frequency and power:power_end events are reported correctly
by the system. I read in the mailing list that Robert Schoene had a
similiar problem, but with power:power_end events. Is there a known bug
regarding to trace_power_start methods in process.c?
