One Line Summary

Making perf tools generic code available as a tools library.


There’s been a need to librarize some of the perf tools code
too be used by other tools, which are at the moment not
part of the kernel tree (trace-cmd, RAS Deamon).

Discuss how to handle out of tree dependency and the state
and future of the tools/lib.
