If I understand the docs correctly, op_to_source -a can do that - the
result is annotated assembly, with percentage numbers for each
instruction. If the sources were compiled with -g2, even source level
annotation is possible.
Mark, do you still have the oprofile output? I don't understand why so
much time is spent in the kernel signal handlers, i.e. I could use
annotated assembly or source of linux/kernel/signal.c.
