Subject[PATCH v21 03/19] perf, tools: Use pmu_events table to create aliases
Date
At run time (when 'perf' is starting up), locate the specific table
of PMU events that corresponds to the current CPU. Using that table,
create aliases for the each of the PMU events in the CPU. The use
these aliases to parse the user specified perf event.

In short this would allow the user to specify events using their
aliases rather than raw event codes.

Based on input and some earlier patches from Andi Kleen, Jiri Olsa.
