Subject[RFC PATCH V2 18/22] x86/intel_rdt: More precise L2 hit/miss measurements
Date
Intel Goldmont processors supports non-architectural precise events that
can be used to give us more insight into the success of L2 cache
pseudo-locking on these platforms.

Introduce a new measurement trigger that will enable two precise events,
MEM_LOAD_UOPS_RETIRED.L2_HIT and MEM_LOAD_UOPS_RETIRED.L2_MISS, while
accessing pseudo-locked data. A new tracepoint, pseudo_lock_l2, is
created to make these results visible to the user.
