Subject[PATCH 5/6] hw-breakpoints: Arbitrate access to pmu following registers constraints
Date
Allow or refuse to build a counter using the breakpoints pmu following
given constraints.

We keep track of the pmu users by using three per cpu variables:

- nr_cpu_bp_pinned stores the number of pinned cpu breakpoints counters
in the given cpu

- nr_bp_flexible stores the number of non-pinned breakpoints counters
in the given cpu.

- task_bp_pinned stores the number of pinned task breakpoints in a cpu

The latter is not a simple counter but gathers the number of tasks that
have n pinned breakpoints.
Considering HBP_NUM the number of available breakpoint address
registers:
task_bp_pinned[0] is the number of tasks having 1 breakpoint
task_bp_pinned[1] is the number of tasks having 2 breakpoints
[...]
task_bp_pinned[HBP_NUM - 1] is the number of tasks having the
maximum number of registers (HBP_NUM).

When a breakpoint counter is created and wants an access to the pmu,
we evaluate the following constraints:

== Non-pinned counter ==

- If attached to a single cpu, check:

(per_cpu(nr_bp_flexible, cpu) || (per_cpu(nr_cpu_bp_pinned, cpu)
+ max(per_cpu(task_bp_pinned, cpu)))) < HBP_NUM
-> If there are already non-pinned counters in this cpu, it
means there is already a free slot for them.
Otherwise, we check that the maximum number of per task
breakpoints (for this cpu) plus the number of per cpu
breakpoint (for this cpu) doesn't cover every registers.

- If attached to every cpus, check:

(per_cpu(nr_bp_flexible, *) || (max(per_cpu(nr_cpu_bp_pinned, *))
+ max(per_cpu(task_bp_pinned, *)))) < HBP_NUM
-> This is roughly the same, except we check the number of per
cpu bp for every cpu and we keep the max one. Same for the
per tasks breakpoints.

== Pinned counter ==

- If attached to a single cpu, check:

((per_cpu(nr_bp_flexible, cpu) > 1)
+ per_cpu(nr_cpu_bp_pinned, cpu)
+ max(per_cpu(task_bp_pinned, cpu))) < HBP_NUM
-> Same checks as before. But now the nr_bp_flexible, if any,
must keep one register at least (or flexible breakpoints will
never be be fed).

- If attached to every cpus, check:

((per_cpu(nr_bp_flexible, *) > 1)
+ max(per_cpu(nr_cpu_bp_pinned, *))
+ max(per_cpu(task_bp_pinned, *))) < HBP_NUM
Changes in v2:

- Counter -> event rename
