Subject[PATCH v6 0/7] Make 24x7 and GPCI events available in sysfs
The current support for the 24x7 and GPCI counters in the kernel requires
users to specify the domain and offset of the event numerically, which is
obviously hard to use:

perf stat -C 0 -e \
'hv_24x7/domain=2,offset=0xd58,starting_index=0,lpar=0xffffffff/' \
sleep 1

This patchset exports the 24x7 and GPCI counters info in sysfs so users can
specify the events by name:

$ cd /sys/bus/event_source/devices/hv_24x7/events



perf stat -C 0 -e \
'hv_24x7/HPM_CS_FROM_L4_LDATA__PHYS_CORE,core=0/' sleep 1

This patchset adds the kernel support to export events in sysfs. A follow-on
patchset will add support to the perf tool to parse the event parameters like
'lpar=?' and display them via 'perf list'.


[Jiri Olsa, Sukadev Bhattiprolu] Rather than display
'starting_index=$core' in perf.list and sysfs and expect user to
specify a value for 'starting_index', replace 'starting_index' with
what it really means for the event. i.e for an event, if starting_index
refers to 'core' then display 'core=?' in both perf list and sysfs (see
examples above).

- [Jiri Olsa, Peter Zijlstra] Use '$arg' notation rather than ?
to indicate event parameters.
- [Michael Ellerman] Separate the kernel and tool patches in the
patchset into different patchsets.

- [Jiri Olsa Rebase to perf/core tree to fix small merge conflict.

- [Jiri Olsa] Changed the event parameters are specified. If
event file specifes 'param=val' make the usage 'param=123'
rather than 'val=123'. (patch 1,2/10)
- Shortened event names using "PHYS" and "VCPU" (patch 4/10)
- Print help message if invalid parameter is specified or required
parameter is missing.
- Moved 3 patches that are unrelated to parametrized events into
a separate patchset.
- Reordered patches so code changes come first.

- [Joe Perches, David Laight] Use beNN_to_cpu() instead of guessing
the size from type.
- Use kmem_cache_free() to free page allocated with kmem_cache_alloc().
- Rebase to recent kernel
