Subject[PATCH v3 0/2] qcom: add l2 cache perf events driver
This adds a new dynamic PMU to the perf events framework to program
and control the L2 cache PMUs in some Qualcomm Technologies SOCs.

The driver exports formatting and event information to sysfs so it
can be used by the perf user space tools with the syntax:
perf stat -a -e l2cache_0/event=0x42/

Qualcomm Technologies PMUs have events arranged in a matrix of rows and columns.
Only one event can be enabled from each column at once. This is enforced
by the filter_match callback.

Remove exports from l2-accessors
Change l2-accessors Kconfig to make it not user-selectable
Reorder and remove unnecessary includes


Add the l2-accessors patch to this patchset, previously posted separately.
Remove sampling and per-task functionality for this uncore PMU.
Use cpumask to replace code which filtered events to one cpu per slice.
Replace manual event filtering with filter_match callback.
Use a separate used_mask for event groups.
Add hotplug notifier for CPU and irq migration.
Remove extraneous synchronisation instructions.
Other miscellaneous cleanup.
