[PATCH/RFC 0/4] perf ui/gtk: Separate out GTK code to a shared object (v2)

From: Namhyung Kim

This is v2 of gtk code separation patchset to reduce library
dependencies of the perf executable.

I only built libperf-gtk.so with -fPIC, and it's not linked to libperf
at build time. All unresolved symbols used for perf should be
resolved at runtime via perf executable (so libperf.a) - I didn't know
that the linker permits unresolved symbols in a shared library at
build time.

Tested on my x86-64 machine only. It seems work well for me.

The patch 1 is a bug fix and can be applied independently.

You can find it on my 'perf/separate-v2' branch in my tree at:


Any comments are welcome, thanks
