SubjectRe: [PATCH] perf tools: Fix bug when recording SPE and non SPE events

Just bring up a question related with PMU event registration. Let's
see the DT binding in arch/arm64/boot/dts/arm/fvp-base-revc.dts:

spe-pmu {
compatible = "arm,statistical-profiling-extension-v1";
interrupts = <GIC_PPI 5 IRQ_TYPE_LEVEL_HIGH>;
};


Now SPE registers PMU event for every CPU; seem to me, though SPE is an
IP binding per CPU, it should register into perf framework with single
pmu event, ARM's PMU/ETM/IntelPT all use this way to regsiter PMU event;
this can allow perf tool logic to be more neat.

After the driver changes to use single PMU registration, the perf tool
code can be changed to use simple way to find perf_pmu and this data
structure can be not bound to a specific CPU. Finally, this bug can
be smoothly dismissed.

Thanks,
Leo
