[PATCH v3 04/35] libperf cpumap: Add "any CPU"/dummy test function

From: Ian Rogers
Date: Wed May 24 2023 - 18:19:08 EST

It is common in the code currently to test a map for "empty" when in
fact the "any CPU"/dummy value of -1 is being sought. Add a new
function to enable this and document the behavior of two other
functions. The term "any CPU" comes from perf_event_open, where the
value is consumed, but it is more typical in the code to see this
value/map referred to as the dummy value. This could be misleading due
to the dummy event and also dummy not being intention revealing, so it
is hoped to migrate the code to referring to this as "any CPU".
