If the current CPU doesn't support performance counters,
cur_cpu_spec->oprofile_cpu_type can be NULL. The current
perfctr modules don't test for that case and would thus
crash.

It can't actually be NULL on a 64-bit CPU; all 64-bit CPUs in the table
have ->oprofile_cpu_type set.

Of course, adding the check probably makes sense anyway.

 .... today :-)

Yup, better safe.

Cheers,
