Subject[PATCH v6 00/15] arm64: Self-hosted trace related errata workarounds

This series adds CPU erratum work arounds related to the self-hosted
tracing. The list of affected errata handled in this series are :

* TRBE may overwrite trace in FILL mode
- Arm Neoverse-N2 #2139208
- Cortex-A710 #211985

* A TSB instruction may not flush the trace completely when executed
in trace prohibited region.

- Arm Neoverse-N2 #2067961
- Cortex-A710 #2054223

* TRBE may write to out-of-range address
- Arm Neoverse-N2 #2253138
- Cortex-A710 #2224489

The series applies on coresight/next. The series has been reordered
to make it easier to merge the patches via arm64 tree and the coresight

Patches 1-4 are could be picked up via arm64 tree. The rest can go via
the coresight tree. The Kconfig items for the TRBE errata are initially
dropped in with dependency on COMPILE_TEST. These are dropped only after
the driver is equipped with the work around in later patches.

A tree is available here : coresight/errata/trbe-tsb-n2-a710/v6

Changes since v5:
- Fix typo in the Kconfig symbol usage in errata listing (Will)
- Fix typo in commit description for
"arm64: errata: Add detection for TRBE overwrite in FILL mode"
- Fix commit description checkpatch warnings on column length for:
"arm64: errata: Add detection for TRBE write to out-of-range"
- Collected Reviews/Acks from Mathieu/Anshuman/Will

Changes since v4:

- Fix WARN on trbe driver probe on a hotplugged CPU, by making
sure that the arm_trbe_probe_cpu() is called from non-premptible
context. this_cpu_has_cap() doesn't like to be called from a
preemptible() context.

- Fix Kconfig text issues pointed out by Randy

Changes since v3:

- Fix missing Kconfig selection for TSB flush failure erratum (Will)
Merged the Kconfig changes to the core patch for TSB.
- Use COMPILE_TEST dependency for the TRBE work arounds instead of
delaying the Kconfig entries.

Changes since v2:
- Dropped patch adding a helper to reach cpudata from perf handle
- Split the TSB erratum work around patch to split the Kconfig/erratum
list update changes(pushed to the end of the series).
- Added wrappers to check the erratum :
trbe_has_erratum(cpudata, TRBE_ERRATUM_<TITLE>) -> trbe_may_<title>
- More ASCII art explanation on workaround.

Changes since v1:
- Added a fix to the TRBE driver handling of sink_specific data
- Added more description and ASCII art for overwrite in FILL mode
work around
- Added another TRBE erratum to the list.
"TRBE may write to out-of-range address"
Patches from 12-17
- Added comment to list the expectations around TSB erratum workaround.
