Subject[RFC 0/3] KVM/ARM: Misc PMU fixes
While writing new PMUv3 event counter KVM unit tests I found 3
things that do not seem to comply with the specification and at
least need to be confirmed.

Two are related to SW_INCR implementation: no check of the
PMCR.E bit, no support of 64b (CHAIN). From the spec,
I do not understand the SW_INCR behaves differently from
other events but I may be wrong.

The last minor thing is about the PMEVTYPER read-only bits.
On Seattle we have an 8.0 implementation which I understand
is supposed to implement only 10-bit evtCount field which is
not enforced.

Best Regards
