Subject[RFC 1/3] perf, tools: Support wildcards on pmu name in dynamic pmu events
Starting on v4.12 event parsing code for dynamic pmu events already
supports prefix-based matching of multiple pmus when creating dynamic
events. E.g., in a system with the following dynamic pmus:


passing mypmu/<config>/ as an event spec will result in the creation
of the event in all of the pmus. This change expands this matching
through the use of fnmatch so glob-like expressions can be used to
create events in multiple pmus. E.g., in the system described above
if a user only wants to create the event in mypmu_0 and mypmu_1,
mypmu_[01]/<config>/ can be passed.
