Adding is the wrong tense in a comment. When someone reads the comment
the code has already been added. Past tense would be right, but really
the comment shouldn't say what you did, it should say why.

Call read_sys_info_pseries() to reinitialise the values.

The RTAS check is not needed. pseries always selects RTAS.

You shouldn't need the IS_ENABLED() check here though, do it with an
empty version in the header when CONFIG_HV_PERF_CTRS is not enabled.

cheers
