Unfortunately I still haven't merged perfmon due to recently-occurring
minor conflicts with Tony's ia64 tree and more major recently-occurring
conflicts with the x86 tree.

There's not really a lot which Stephane can practically do about this -
normally I'll just get down and fix stuff like this up.  But the impression
I get from various people is that the perfmon tree in its present form
would not be a popular merge.

The impression which people have (and I admit to sharing it) is that
there's just too much stuff in there and it might not all be justifiable. 
But I suspect that people have largely forgotten what is in there, and why
it is in there.

We really need to get this ball rolling, and that will require a sustained
effort from more people than just Stephane.  I suppose as a starting point
we could yet again review the existing patches, please.  People will mainly
concentrate upon the changelogging to understand which features are being
proposed and why, so that submission should describe these things pretty
carefully: what are the features and why do we need each of them.
