Subject[PATCH V2 12/23] perf/core: Support a REMOVE transaction
Date
From: Andi Kleen <ak@linux.intel.com>

The TopDown events can be collected per thread/process on Icelake. To
use TopDown through RDPMC in applications, the metrics and slots MSR
values have to be saved/restored during context switching.
It is useful to have a remove transaction when the counter is
unscheduled, so that the values can be saved correctly.
Add a remove transaction to the perf core.
