What a timing. I am working on (slowly) on a tool that would get 
all struct and class declarations and for each of them get 
functions in which they are used. Then combine them with 
profiling data to find data structures that are hot and how 
changing them affects performance. The only code that is written 
is partially parsing perf.data file and the rest is missing. It 
would be wonderful if your tool could emit such functions then my 
job would be easy. Parsing would have been done if perf.data 
format was fully documented.
