My goal here is to find a place that I can declare a set of function
prototypes and macros used in the IOMMU driver and IOMMU PERF. These are
exported by the AMD IOMMU and can be used by other drivers (e.g. IOMMU
perf).

The reason I picked this location to place the header file is because
there is already an existing include/linux/perf/arm_pmu.h file there.
So, I thought it might be alright to put the perf_event_amd_iommu.h here.

Having the information in the file arch/x86/events/amd/iommu.h seems
strange for having to specify ../../arch/x86/events/amd/iommu.h in the
IOMMU driver.

So, you think it would be alright if move

include/linux/perf/perf_event_amd_iommu.h
to
arch/x86/include/perf/perf_event_amd_iommu.h

Thanks,
