Subject[PATCH 4.19 225/271] perf/x86/amd/uncore: Do not set ThreadMask and SliceMask for non-L3 PMCs
From: Kim Phillips <>

commit 16f4641166b10e199f0d7b68c2c5f004fef0bda3 upstream.

The following commit:

d7cbbe49a930 ("perf/x86/amd/uncore: Set ThreadMask and SliceMask for L3 Cache perf events")

enables L3 PMC events for all threads and slices by writing 1's in
'ChL3PmcCfg' (L3 PMC PERF_CTL) register fields.

Those bitfields overlap with high order event select bits in the Data
Fabric PMC control register, however.

So when a user requests raw Data Fabric events (-e amd_df/event=0xYYY/),
the two highest order bits get inadvertently set, changing the counter
select to events that don't exist, and for which no counts are read.

This patch changes the logic to write the L3 masks only when dealing
with L3 PMC counters.

AMD Family 16h and below Northbridge (NB) counters were not affected.
