       "Main changes:
         - Multiple MSI support added to the APIC, PCI and AHCI code - acked
           by all relevant maintainers, by Alexander Gordeev.
           The advantage is that multiple AHCI ports can have multiple MSI
           irqs assigned, and can thus spread to multiple CPUs.
           [ Drivers can make use of this new facility via the
             pci_enable_msi_block_auto() method ]
         - x86 IOAPIC code from interrupt remapping cleanups from Joerg
           These patches move all interrupt remapping specific checks out of
           the x86 core code and replaces the respective call-sites with
           function pointers.  As a result the interrupt remapping code is
           better abstraced from x86 core interrupt handling code.

      Pull perf changes from Ingo Molnar:
       "There are lots of improvements, the biggest changes are:
        Main kernel side changes:
         - Improve uprobes performance by adding 'pre-filtering' support, by
           Oleg Nesterov.
         - Make some POWER7 events available in sysfs, equivalent to what was
           done on x86, from Sukadev Bhattiprolu.
         - tracing updates by Steve Rostedt - mostly misc fixes and smaller
         - Use perf/event tracing to report PCI Express advanced errors, by
           Tony Luck.
         - Enable northbridge performance counters on AMD family 15h, by Jacob
         - This tracing commit:
              tracing: Remove the extra 4 bytes of padding in events
           changes the ABI.  All involved parties (PowerTop in particular)
           seem to agree that it's safe to do now with the introduction of
           libtraceevent, but the devil is in the details ...
        Main tooling side changes:
         - Add 'event group view', from Namyung Kim:
           To use it, 'perf record' should group events when recording.  And
           then perf report parses the saved group relation from file header
           and prints them together if --group option is provided.  You can
           use the 'perf evlist' command to see event group information:
              $ perf record -e '{ref-cycles,cycles}' noploop 1
              [ perf record: Woken up 2 times to write data ]
              [ perf record: Captured and wrote 0.385 MB perf.data (~16807 samples) ]
              $ perf evlist --group
           With this example, default perf report will show you each event
           You can use --group option to enable event group view:
              $ perf report --group
              # group: {ref-cycles,cycles}
              # ========
              # Samples: 7K of event 'anon group { ref-cycles, cycles }'
              # Event count (approx.): 6876107743
              #         Overhead  Command      Shared Object                      Symbol

           As you can see the Overhead column now contains both of ref-cycles
           and cycles and header line shows group information also - 'anon
           group { ref-cycles, cycles }'.  The output is sorted by period of
           group leader first.
         - Initial GTK+ annotate browser, from Namhyung Kim.
         - Add option for runtime switching perf data file in perf report,
           just press 's' and a menu with the valid files found in the current
           directory will be presented, from Feng Tang.
         - Add support to display whole group data for raw columns, from Jiri
         - Add per processor socket count aggregation in perf stat, from
           Stephane Eranian.
         - Add interval printing in 'perf stat', from Stephane Eranian.
         - 'perf test' improvements
         - Add support for wildcards in tracepoint system name, from Jiri
         - Add anonymous huge page recognition, from Joshua Zhu.
         - perf build-id cache now can show DSOs present in a perf.data file
           that are not in the cache, to integrate with build-id servers being
           put in place by organizations such as Fedora.
         - perf top now shares more of the evsel config/creation routines with
           'record', paving the way for further integration like 'top'
           snapshots, etc.
         - perf top now supports DWARF callchains.
         - Fix mmap limitations on 32-bit, fix from David Miller.
         - 'perf bench numa mem' NUMA performance measurement suite
         - ... and lots of fixes, performance improvements, cleanups and other
           improvements I failed to list - see the shortlog and git log for

         - Don't stop tick with irq works pending.  This fix is generally
           useful and concerns archs that can't raise self IPIs.
         - Flush irq works before CPU offlining.
         - Introduce "lazy" irq works that can wait for the next tick to be
           executed, unless it's stopped.
         - Implement klogd wake up using irq work.  This removes the ad-hoc
           printk_tick()/printk_needs_cpu() hooks and make it working even in
