kBench9000 – simple kernel land cycle counter

by Jason A. Donenfeld

This is a very simple kernel land cycle counter. To use, simply edit function.h, add any other .c files and mention them in the kbench9000-y += line of the Makefile, and then type:

$ make run

Expected kBench9000 output

$ sudo apt install linux-headers-$(uname -r) build-essential


$ sudo dnf install kernel-devel @development-tools
