Thank you for sharing the utility and the recording, but it seems that
there is a desire to get access to the heat maps not only for
validation, but also for certain processing purposes, and so I do not
think that we should try to standardize on debugfs as the interface, but
rather look for something that allows better performance.

I wonder if the interface should look similar to the V4L2 capture API
where application opens a character device, uses several ioctls to query
its capabilities/set up capture parameters (i.e reference or deltas),
select()s file descriptor for reading and then uses mmap() to access the
captured heat map.

I've CCed a few people who might be interested in this topic.

Thanks.
