Description : PAFLib is a IBM written library which exposes Power Architecture Facilities to userspace via an API
PAFLib is a IBM written library which exposes Power Architecture Facilities to
userspace via an API. This includes the Data Stream Control Register Facility
(DSCR) and the Event-Based Branching facility (EBB). Linux kernel 3.9 has
exposed problem-state DSCR usage for ISA 2.06 (POWER7 – emulated) and ISA 2.07
(POWER8 – in hardware). Linux 3.10 has exposed the EBB facility.
This is a useful package for the ppc64el, ppc64 and power architecture.
