Can CONFIG_PERF_COUNTERS be configured on for 2.6.31 (karmic) kernel pacakages?

Asked by John Stultz on 2009-10-16

The new perf tool in 2.6.31 is really quite nice. It would be helpful if the Ubuntu kernel supported it.

See the link for details:

CONFIG_PERF_COUNTERS=y would need to be set to enable this.

I would have filed a bug on this, but for whatever reason, I can't seem to get launchpad to play along.
