[PATCH 10/12] perf evlist: Only open events on CPUs an evsel permits

From: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo

From: Mark Rutland <mark.rutland@xxxxxxx>

In systems with heterogeneous CPU PMUs, it's possible for each evsel to
cover a distinct set of CPUs, and hence the cpu_map associated with each
evsel may have a distinct idx<->id mapping. Any of these may be distinct
from the evlist's cpu map.

Events can be tied to the same fd so long as they use the same per-cpu
ringbuffer (i.e. so long as they are on the same CPU). To acquire the
correct FDs, we must compare the Linux logical IDs rather than the evsel
or evlist indices.

This path adds logic to perf_evlist__mmap_per_evsel to handle this,
translating IDs as required. As PMUs may cover a subset of CPUs from the
evlist, we skip the CPUs a PMU cannot handle.

Without this patch, perf record may try to mmap erroneous FDs on
heterogeneous systems, and will bail out early rather than running the
