Attached patch Save ARM LR register in profiles (obsolete) — Splinter Review
This is a hacky stopgap until we get full stack walking support.  We save the LR register with every PC sample, and then in the profiler UI we trust LR only from a set of whitelisted functions (mainly leaf functions from libc/bionic, e.g. various sycalls).  This gives us a bit of a better idea what's being called, even if we don't have the full stack.

Save ARM LR register in profiles

r+ with the ifdef fixed to only add the L labels if we're coming from platform-linux so we don't trigger this on say windows arm.
