The paper http://research.microsoft.com/~tharris/papers/2007-fdip.pdf
is about using profile information to source recompilation to
accelerate the program. It needs source program. What I consider about
is how to extract parallism from sequential binaries that we can not
get the source program( for example, execute X86 application on RISC
ISA machine using virtual machine).
