Hi Alexander,

I can see your point about compiler.h, it is true that it is just
being used for the __packed definition. Why don't you write your
proposed change as a patch and send it to LKML? libperf is more of an
experimental library than a stable API. We don't currently have any
build tests for things outside of the kernel tree.

Thanks,
Ian
