What about the folks who worked hard on sparc, powerpc, et al. perfmon
support? Do they "just lose" for the moment? :-/

I'm really disappointed that I did all of the work to make pfmon,
libpfm, and the kernel bits work with perfmon on sparc and that
appears to be all for nothing as there is no update for those
architectures in this new patch set. So likely I'll have to do it all
over again.

I definitely do not support this reincarnation, this is the last thing
I expected to happen.

Three weeks of my own work down the drain which I invested (during
which I put my networking maintainership and other responsibilities to
the side) in order to help champion this perfmon stuff in the first

Gee, thanks...
