Subject[RFC 0/5] perf: Per PMU access controls (paranoid setting)
Date
From: Tvrtko Ursulin <tvrtko.ursulin@intel.com>

For situations where sysadmins might want to allow different level of
access control for different PMUs, we start creating per-PMU
perf_event_paranoid controls in sysfs.

These work in equivalent fashion as the existing perf_event_paranoid
sysctl, which now becomes the parent control for each PMU.

On PMU registration the global/parent value will be inherited by each PMU,
as it will be propagated to all registered PMUs when the sysctl is
updated.

At any later point individual PMU access controls, located in
<sysfs>/device/<pmu-name>/perf_event_paranoid, can be adjusted to achieve
fine grained access control.

Discussion from previous posting:
https://lkml.org/lkml/2018/5/21/156

New in this version:

1. Hopefully fixed build issues in core-book3s.c. (Thanks kbuild test robot!)
2. Perf tool support for new controls, largely contributed by Jiri Olsa.

Tvrtko Ursulin (5):
perf: Move some access checks later in perf_event_open
perf: Pass pmu pointer to perf_paranoid_* helpers
perf: Allow per PMU access control
perf Documentation: Document the per PMU perf_event_paranoid interface
tools/perf: Add support for per-PMU access control
