Somehow we fixed the same thing...

sched: document profile=sleep requiring CONFIG_SCHEDSTATS

profile=sleep only works if CONFIG_SCHEDSTATS is set. This patch notes
the limitation in Documentation/kernel-parameters.txt and prints a
warning at boot-time if profile=sleep is used without CONFIG_SCHEDSTAT.

Add missing profile=kvm option to Documentation/kernel-parameters.txt

Whilst looking up what profile=sleep did, I noticed that we missed
adding docs for the most recent addition to the profiler.

And this was my post to LKML. Maybe I was too slow...but anyway, at least I achieve almost the same thing purely by reading the source code. Now that's what I call working!
