[PATCH 00/11] perf: Intel Cache QoS Monitoring support

From: Matt Fleming

From: Matt Fleming <matt.fleming@xxxxxxxxx>

This patch series adds a new PMU driver for the Intel Cache Monitoring
hardware feature available in Intel Xeon processors, which allows
monitoring of LLC occupancy on a task, group or system-wide basis.

The first few patches modify tools/perf to handle per-package counters,
which necessitates discarding some values when doing per-cpu reads to
avoid getting duplicate data. The rest add support for the new PMU code.

I've left a notoriously funky bit of code as the last patch, the RMID
rotation code, in an attempt to simplify things. Doing the rotation
provides the ability to multiplex the RMIDs and basically overcome the
hardware limitation, but the rest of the patches work fine without it.
But there are a number of scenarios where being able to monitor more
tasks than RMIDs is extremely useful.

The series is based on tip/perf/core.

Matt Fleming (10):
perf stat: Fix AGGR_CORE segfault on multi-socket system
perf tools: Refactor unit and scale function parameters
perf tools: Parse event per-package info files
perf: Make perf_cgroup_from_task() global
perf: Add ->count() function to read per-package counters
perf: Move cgroup init before PMU ->event_init()
perf/x86/intel: Add Intel Cache QoS Monitoring support
perf/x86/intel: Implement LRU monitoring ID allocation for CQM
perf/x86/intel: Support task events with Intel CQM
perf/x86/intel: Perform rotation on Intel CQM RMIDs
