Description Hiren Panchasara freebsd_committer 2014-11-04 00:08:06 UTC
Did "pmcstat -S instructions -T" on a 10-stable (ish) sandybridge xeon box and it paniced.

From chat:

14:38 <@davide> hiren: I see nothing in the code preventing the thread to be rescheduled into another cpu from a first look
14:38 <@adrian> *burp*
14:38 <@davide> at the end of pmc_capture_user_callchain() you call sched_unpin() but there's no matching sched_pin() call


Need to investigate more.

Hiren, is this PR still valid?
