This depends on the generic atomic64_t patches, which are now in

Note, i've created a new branch, tip:perfcounters/powerpc, so we can
keep these things separate and Ben can pull them too. I see there
was some review feedback - do you want to send a v2 version perhaps?

Out of interest, is the intent to try and get these changes into .31? I ask because I want to know if I should try to find time to add support for the FSL embedded perfmon ASAP or not.
