Default Bug#661998: version requirement too specific

Package: linux-tools-3.2
Version: 3.2.1-2
Severity: important


running perf gives:

mrvn@frosties:~% perf
/usr/bin/perf: line 24: exec: perf_3.1: not found
E: linux-tools-3.1 is not installed.

But the linux-tools-3.1 package does no exist. There is only a
linux-tools-3.2 package. On the other hand calling perf_3.2 directly
seems to work just fine despite running a 3.1 kernel.

So why is there such a close version requirement between perf and
linux-tools-x.y? Why isn't there a perf_3 binary or just an
alternative that works with 3.x kernels in general

If there actualy is a good reason for the strict version requirement
then please do make sure that linux-tools-x.y packages stick around
