Subject[PATCH v2] x86/perf: Enable free running pebs for REGS_USER/INTR
Date
From: Andi Kleen <ak@linux.intel.com>

Currently free running PEBS is disabled when user or interrupt
registers are requested. Most of the registers are actually
available in the PEBS record and can be supported.

So we just need to check for the supported registers and then
allow it: it is all except for the segment register.

For user registers this only works when the counter is limited
to ring 3 only, so this also needs to be checked.

v2: Correctly check intr regs too.
