[PATCH RESEND v1 01/11] perf mem: Search event name with more flexible path

From: Leo Yan
Date: Wed Aug 05 2020 - 23:07:59 EST

Perf tool searches memory event name under the folder
'/sys/devices/cpu/events/', this leads to the limitation for selection
memory profiling event which must be under this folder. Thus it's
impossible to use any other event as memory event which is not under
this specific folder, e.g. Arm SPE hardware event is not located in
'/sys/devices/cpu/events/' so it cannot be enabled for memory profiling.

This patch changes to search folder from '/sys/devices/cpu/events/' to
'/sys/devices', so it give flexibility to find events which can be used
for memory profiling.
