I've tried it all ways with and w/o --separate=kernel, with and w/o -x.
No pvmlinux1 samples.  :-(

Anyway, there aren't any pvmlinux1 samples in the oprofiled.log either,
so this is a problem upstream of the opreport (i. e. either in oprofiled or in 
the kernel code that sets the mode, etc.)

I'm losing a ton of samples someplace:  opreport has just shy of 1,000,000
samples accounted for, and the experiment ran for 120 seconds on a 3.00 GHZ
Pentium D, so that should be around 3.6 million samples.   According to a
"grep Sample oprofiled.log | wc" oprofiled saw around 3.4 million samples, so 
that is not too far off.   (The experiment is a kernel compile, repeated over 
and over, so the guest cpu should be busy all the time.)

Cool.  I was just trying to help Markus out.
