By looking at this code, I realized that even on Zen2 this is wrong.
It does not work well.
You are basically saying that the L3 event is tied to the CPU the
event is programmed to.
But this does not work with the cpumask programmed for the amd_l3 PMU. This mask
shows, as it should, one CPU/CCX. So that means that when I do:

$ perf stat -a amd_l3/event=llc_event/

This only collects on the CPUs listed in the cpumask: 0,4,8,12 ....
That means that L3 events generated by the other CPUs on the CCX are
not monitored.
I can easily see the problem by pinning a memory bound program to
CPU64, for instance.

I think the thread mask should be exposed to the user. If not
specified, then set the mask to
cover all CPUs of the CCX. That way you can pick and choose what you
want. And with one event/CCX
you can monitor for all CPUs. I can send a patch that does that.

With what you have now, you have to force the list of CPUs with -C to
work around
the cpumask. And forcing the cpumask to 0-255 does not make sense because not
all L3 events necessarily need the L3 mask, so you don't want to program them on
all CPUs especially with 8 cpus/CCX and only 6 counters.
