Indeed. I know it does not look like it, but I'm actively working on
merging things like this in the VMM trunk, and I need to be able to
see things like this in the oscog branch in order to understand them.
Especially since I'm usually dealing with stuff I actually *don't*
understand ;-)

Andreas' profiler is a great example. I still don't have it working
right, but I'll figure it out one of these days, or maybe someone else
will. But there would be no chance of getting it right if we did not
have the code in oscog for reference.
