When counting IMC uncore events on some TGL machines, an oops will be
[ 393.101262] BUG: unable to handle page fault for address:
[ 393.101269] #PF: supervisor read access in kernel mode
[ 393.101271] #PF: error_code(0x0000) - not-present page

Current perf uncore driver still use the IMC MAP SIZE inherited from
SNB, which is 0x6000.
However, the offset of IMC uncore counters for some TGL machines is
larger than 0x6000, e.g. 0xd8a0.

Enlarge the IMC MAP SIZE for TGL to 0xe000.

Replacing one 'random' constant with a different one
doesn't seem like a proper fix.

Surely the actual bounds of the 'memory' area are properly
defined somewhere.
Or at least should come from a table.

You also need to verify that the offsets are within the mapped area.
An unexpected offset shouldn't try to access an invalid address.

Thanks for the review.

I agree that we should add a check before mapping the area to prevent the issue happens again.

I think the check should be a generic check for all platforms which try to map an area, not just for TGL. I will submit a separate patch for the check.
