Subject[PATCH v3 0/2] x86/resctrl: Work around MBM errata
Date
Intel Memory Bandwidth Monitoring (MBM) counters may report system
memory bandwidth incorrectly on some Intel processors. The errata are
reported in erratum SKX99 [1], erratum BDF102 [2] and RDT reference
manual [3].

The errata are worked around using a correction factor table. Since
the correction factor table is not publicly documented anywhere, it's
documented in Documentation/x86/resctrl.rst along with the errata.

1. Erratum SKX99 in Intel Xeon Processor Scalable Family Specification
Update:

2. Erratum BDF102 in Intel Xeon E5-2600 v4 Processor Product Family
Specification Update:

3. The errata in Intel Resource Director Technology (Intel RDT) on 2nd
Generation Intel Xeon Scalable Processors Reference Manual:
https://software.intel.com/content/www/us/en/develop/articles/intel-resource-director-technology-rdt-reference-manual.html

Change Log:
v3:
- Remove unnecessary conf.py change in patch 1 (Randy).

v2:
- Document the errata and the correction table in resctrl.rst (Boris).
- Address various comments on patch 2 (Boris).
- Change the documentation URLs to stable archive.org (Tony).
