Kernprof-profiling v0.9 is now available at:
http://oss.sgi.com/projects/kernprof

The principal change from the previous version (v0.8.1) is a new profiling
mode: scheduler call graph.  In this mode the call graphs leading to context
switches in schedule() are recorded.  To enable this mode a new kernprof
(v1.2) is also required (and available).

Profiling v0.9 fully supports "scheduler call graph" mode for i386 and mips64
architectures ("fully" means that the entire call graph is recorded), but
only partially supports this new mode for ia64 and sparc64 ("partially" means
that only the call graph of the final caller to schedule() is recorded).
This deficiency will be corrected soon.
