Subject[PATCH v9 00/13] selftests/resctrl: Add resctrl selftest
With more and more resctrl features are being added by Intel, AMD
and ARM, a test tool is becoming more and more useful to validate
that both hardware and software functionalities work as expected.

We introduce resctrl selftest to cover resctrl features on X86, AMD
and ARM architectures. It first implements MBM (Memory Bandwidth
Monitoring), MBA (Memory Bandwidth Allocation), L3 CAT (Cache Allocation
Technology), and CQM (Cache QoS Monitoring) tests. We will enhance
the selftest tool to include more functionality tests in the future.

The tool has been tested on Intel RDT, AMD QoS and ARM MPAM and is
in tools/testing/selftests/resctrl in order to have generic test code
base for all architectures.

The selftest tool we are introducing here provides a convenient
tool which does automatic resctrl testing, is easily available in kernel
tree, and covers Intel RDT, AMD QoS and ARM MPAM.

There is an existing resctrl test suite 'intel_cmt_cat'. But its major
purpose is to test Intel RDT hardware via writing and reading MSR
registers. It does access resctrl file system; but the functionalities
are very limited. And it doesn't support automatic test and a lot of
manual verifications are involved.

- Per Boris suggestion, add Co-developed-by in each patch to make it
clear who contributed to the patch set.

Update code per comments from Andre Przywara from ARM:
- Change Makefile and remove inline assembly code to build and test the
tool on ARM
- Change the output to TAP format because the format is both readable by
human and other test tools.
- Detect resctrl feature from /proc/cpuinfo instead of dmesg to support
generic detection on all architectures.
- Fix a few coding issues.

- Fix a few warnings when compiling patches separately, pointed by Babu

- Fix a benchmark reading optimized out issue in newer GCC.
- Fix a few coding style issues.
- Re-arrange code among patches to make cleaner code. No change in patches

- Based the v4 patches submitted by Fenghua Yu and added changes to support
- Changed the function name get_sock_num to get_resource_id. Intel uses
socket number for schemata and AMD uses l3 index id. To generalize,
changed the function name to get_resource_id.
- Added the code to detect vendor.
- Disabled the few tests for AMD where the test results are not clear.
Also AMD does not have IMC.
- Fixed few compile issues.
- Some cleanup to make each patch independent.
- Tested the patches on AMD system. Fenghua, Need your help to test on
Intel box. Please feel free to change and resubmit if something

- address comments from Balu and Randy
- Add CAT and CQM tests

- Change code based on comments from Babu Moger
- Remove some unnessary code and use pipe to communicate b/w processes

- Change code based on comments from Babu Moger
- Clean up other places.
