Merge branch 'perf-core-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip

Pull perf updates from Ingo Molnar:
 "Kernel side changes:

   - Improved kbprobes robustness

   - Intel PEBS support for PT hardware tracing

   - Other Intel PT improvements: high order pages memory footprint
     reduction and various related cleanups

   - Misc cleanups

  The perf tooling side has been very busy in this cycle, with over 300
  commits. This is an incomplete high-level summary of the many
  improvements done by over 30 developers:

   - Lots of updates to the following tools:

      'perf c2c'
      'perf config'
      'perf record'
      'perf report'
      'perf script'
      'perf test'
      'perf top'
      'perf trace'

   - Updates to libperf and libtraceevent, and a consolidation of the
     proliferation of x86 instruction decoder libraries.

   - Vendor event updates for Intel and PowerPC CPUs,

   - Updates to hardware tracing tooling for ARM and Intel CPUs,

   - ... and lots of other changes and cleanups - see the shortlog and
     Git log for details"
