Subject[PATCH v2 1/4] perf tools: Support Arm arch timer counter
Date
The Arm arch timer can be used to calculate timestamp, the basic idea is
the arch timer's counter value can be recorded in the hardware tracing
data, e.g. the arch timer's counter value can be used for Arm CoreSight
(not now but might be implemented later) and Arm SPE. So we need a way
to convert the arch timer's counter to the system time, the conversion
is dependent on some related parameters, e.g. 'time_shift', 'time_mult',
'time_offset', etc; furthermore, to handle the counter wrapping issue,
perf tool needs to know 'time_cycles' and 'time_mask' for correction.

This patch is to support Arm arch timer by reading out the relevant
parameters from the head of first mmaped page. And these parameters
will be stored into the structure 'perf_arch_timer_conversion' for
later calculation timestamp.
