Subject[PATCH V1 00/13] Miscellaneous fixes for resctrl selftests
This patch set has several miscellaneous fixes to resctrl selftest tool. Some
fixes are minor in nature while other are major fixes.

The minor fixes are
1. Typos, comment format
2. Fix MBA feature detection
3. Fix a bug while selecting sibling cpu
4. Remove unnecessary use of variable arguments
5. Change MBM/MBA results reporting format from absolute values to percentage

The major fixes are changing CAT and CQM test cases. CAT test wasn't testing
CAT as it isn't using the cache it's allocated, hence, change the test case to
test noisy neighbor use case. CAT guarantees a user specified amount of cache
for a process or a group of processes, hence test this use case. The updated
test case checks if critical process is impacted by noisy neighbor or not. If
it's impacted the test fails.

The present CQM test assumes that all the allocated memory (size less than LLC
size) for a process will fit into cache and there won't be any overlappings.
While this is mostly true, it cannot be *always* true by the nature of how cache
works i.e. two addresses could index into same cache line. Hence, change CQM
test such that it now uses CAT. Allocate a specific amount of cache using CAT
and check if CQM reports more than what CAT has allocated.
