Hi Robert, 

The patch isn't going to work in its current state.   kcalloc to kzalloc and have different number of arguments.

static inline void *kcalloc(size_t n, size_t size, gfp_t flags)
static inline void *kzalloc(size_t size, gfp_t flags)

I think I have an idea why the performance monitoring isn't working on the tegra based trimslice I have. It looks like the pmu hardware is never registered.

I am trying to get a kernel that has working pmu support then try testing the suggested patch.
