    how to distinguish L3 miss between local core and others with using only one counter

    jiayaocang
      discription of the L3 miss event :
      L3_CACHE_MISSES: (counter: all)
      Number of L3 cache misses from each core (min count: 500)
      Unit masks (default 0xf7)
      ----------
      0x01: Read block Exclusive (Data cache read)
      0x02: Read block Shared (Instruciton cache read)
      0x04: Read block Modify
      0x10: Core 0 select
      0x20: Core 1 select
      0x40: Core 2 select
      0x80: Core 3 select

      i want use one counter to monitor L3 miss, for example,
      counter 1 in core0 with mask 0x17,
      counter 1 in core0 with mask 0x27,
      counter 1 in core0 with mask 0x37,
      counter 1 in core0 with mask 0x47,
      so counter 2 through 4 could be used to monitor other events.
      how do i describe the above configuration in oprofile/daemonrc?
