Subject[RFC][PATCH 10/11] perfcounters: abstract wakeup flag setting in core to fix powerpc build
From: Paul Mackerras <paulus@samba.org>

Impact: build fix for powerpc

Commit bd753921015e7905 ("perf_counter: software counter event
infrastructure") introduced a use of TIF_PERF_COUNTERS into the core
perfcounter code. This breaks the build on powerpc because we use
a flag in a per-cpu area to signal wakeups on powerpc rather than
a thread_info flag, because the thread_info flags have to be
manipulated with atomic operations and are thus slower than per-cpu
flags.

This fixes the by changing the core to use an abstracted
set_perf_counter_pending() function, which is defined on x86 to set
the TIF_PERF_COUNTERS flag and on powerpc to set the per-cpu flag
(paca->perf_counter_pending). It changes the previous powerpc
definition of set_perf_counter_pending to not take an argument and
adds a clear_perf_counter_pending, so as to simplify the definition
on x86.

On x86, set_perf_counter_pending() is defined as a macro. Defining
it as a static inline in arch/x86/include/asm/perf_counters.h causes
compile failures because <asm/perf_counters.h> gets included early in
<linux/sched.h>, and the definitions of set_tsk_thread_flag etc. are
therefore not available in <asm/perf_counters.h>. (On powerpc this
problem is avoided by defining set_perf_counter_pending etc. in
<asm/hw_irq.h>.)
