Subject[PATCH v6 2/7] perf/x86/intel: Record branch type
Date
Perf already has support for disassembling the branch instruction
and using the branch type for filtering. The patch just records
the branch type in perf_branch_entry.

Before recording, the patch converts the x86 branch type to
common branch type.

Change log
----------

v6: Not changed.

v5: Just fix the merge error. No other update.

v4: Comparing to previous version, the major changes are:

1. Uses a lookup table to convert x86 branch type to common branch
type.

2. Move the JCC forward/JCC backward and cross page computing to
user space.

3. Initialize branch type to 0 in intel_pmu_lbr_read_32 and
intel_pmu_lbr_read_64
