Hello José.

VM instrumentation profiling is now in Jitter, tag v0.9.246, master.

You may want to check structured-main.c and vm-main.c as examples; if
order to enable the feature you need to define the macro
JITTER_INSTRUMENT_FOR_PROFILING when compiling Jitter and your VM.

Notice that profiles are recorded separately within each VM state: if
you want to merge profiles from multiple states, as I think you need to,
you may need this solution:

  pvm_profile p = pvm_profile_make ();
  pvm_profile_merge_from (p, state1);
  pvm_profile_merge_from (p, state2);
  pvm_profile_merge_from (p, stateN);

The profile to print is p.  Then, at the end,

  pvm_profile_destroy (p);

(There is no need to destroy the profiles within each state: those are
destroyed when each state is destroyed.)

The feature could be improved, but I find it already useful as it stands.

matter how deeply held, with open disrespect and the same unrelented
enthusiasm of a toddler who has just learned the word "poo".
