# modprobe mtdram size=16384
# mount -tjffs2 mtd0 /mnt
# cp -av .git /mnt # until it fills up
# umount /mnt
# perf record mount -tjffs2 mtd0 /mnt

On my desktop 'perf' only gets about 12 samples from that, so it's not
ideal. But you can make the mtdram device bigger, use something other
than my shiny new laptop, and use a higher sample frequency from 'perf'
and you should be able to get some vaguely meaningful results.
