The only thing Linus sais is that it's trivial to generate a subpackage,
and that opofile is a desaster. Both of them are 100% correct but at
the same time entirely miss the point.

Yes, oprofile was and is a desaster, but that has aboslutely nothing to
do with where the code lives.

And yes, it's easy to generate a subpackage, but you still need all the
source tree first. There's a reason why things like got split up
(too fine grained in my opinion, but that's another story).

As said I very much disagree with having the userspace perf tree in the
kernel still, but I've also given up on the fight as I have more
important things to do.

And as said before it has nothing to do with the issue discussed here
right now.
