Subject: [PATCH 5/5] perf trace: add possibility to switch off syscall events
Date: Thu, 26 Jun 2014 20:14:28 +0400
Message-ID: <1403799268-1367-6-git-send-email-stfomichev@yandex-team.ru> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1403799268-1367-1-git-send-email-stfomichev@yandex-team.ru>

Currently, we may either trace syscalls or syscalls+pagefaults. We'd
like to be able to trace *only* pagefaults and this commit implements
this feature.
