Thanks for the help. getting such library will solve
lot of purpose.

I have no OS on the hardware. but it can go into ISR
as soon as timer interrupt arrives. 

What I understand is that profil() will allocate some
memory area, and in the timer ISR I will need to
the respective array slot based on the value of PC and
histogram factor

is it feasible to get profil() similar functionality
using  timer engine? Would it be easy to porting
mcount/monstartup/profil interface functions this way?

Please suggest. 
Or where can I have a look on some reference
