CPU profiler that profiles the entire system

'sysprof' is a sampling CPU profiler that uses a kernel module to profile the entire system (not just a single application). It handles shared libraries, and applications do not need to be recompiled. It profiles all running processes, has a GUI, shows the time spent in each branch of the call tree, and can load and save profiles.
