Description Kyle McMartin 2010-05-08 12:39:04 EDT
libbfd provides the ability to do name demangling for perf, which is a useful feature.

Unfortunately, the kernel build is missing a requires against binutils-static, which contains libbfd.a. (For some reason, it refuses to link against the shared library.)
