Subject[PATCH v7 2/6] perf annotate: Add support for powerpc
Date
From: "Naveen N. Rao" <naveen.n.rao@linux.vnet.ibm.com>

Current perf can disassemble annotated function but it does not have
parsing logic for powerpc instructions. So all navigation options are
not available for powerpc.

Apart from that, Powerpc has long list of branch instructions and
hardcoding them in table appears to be error-prone. So, add function
to find instruction instead of creating table. This function dynamically
create table (list of 'struct ins'), and instead of creating object
every time, first check if list already contain object for that
instruction.

Changes in v7:
- Little bit change in initializing instruction list.
