[PATCH v7 1/5] perf: Add SNOOP_PEER flag to perf mem data struct

From: Ali Saidi
Date: Tue Apr 26 2022 - 10:02:40 EST

Add a flag to the perf mem data struct to signal that a request caused a
cache-to-cache transfer of a line from a peer of the requestor and
wasn't sourced from a lower cache level. The line being moved from one
peer cache to another has latency and performance implications. On Arm64
Neoverse systems the data source can indicate a cache-to-cache transfer
but not if the line is dirty or clean, so instead of overloading HITM
define a new flag that indicates this type of transfer.
