Subject[PATCH v2 0/4] Perf tool: Enable Arm arch timer counter and arm-spe's timestamp
Date
This patch set is to enable Arm arch timer counter and Arm SPE is the
first customer to use arch timer counter for its timestamp.

Patches 01 ~ 03 enables Arm arch timer counter in Perf tool; patch 01 is
to retrieve arch timer's parameters from mmaped page; patch 02 provides
APIs for the conversion between arch timer's counter and time; patch 03
adds a test for patches 01 and 02.

As the first customer to use Arm arch timer counter in perf tool, patch
04 is to generate sample's timestamp for ARM SPE AUX trace data.

This patch set has been rebased on perf/core branch with the latest
commit c4735d990268 ("perf evsel: Don't set
sample_regs_intr/sample_regs_user for dummy event").

After changes:

# perf test 67 -v
67: Convert perf time to arch timer counter
--- start ---
test child forked, pid 5463
mmap size 528384B
1st event perf time 2231755083020 arch timer cnt 113097053477
test time 2231755087460 arch timer cnt 113097053699
2nd event perf time 2231755090680 arch timer cnt 113097053860
test child finished with 0
---- end ----

Reports the SPE sample with timestamp:

Changes from v1:
* Rebased on the latest perf/core branch;
* Added a testing for Arm timer counter conversion (Ian Rogers).
