+ Libpfm4 helps convert from an event name, expressed as a string, to
+ the event encoding. The encoding can then be used with specific OS
+ interfaces. Libpfm4 also provides OS-specific interfaces to directly
+ setup OS-specific data structures to be passed to the kernel. The
+ current libpfm4, for instance, provides support for the perf_events
+ interface.
