Why aren't these just probed independently, as separate PCI devices,
rather than using a shared initcall?

You'd have to read the MIDR a few times, but that's a tiny fraction of
the rest of the cost of probing, and you can keep the common portion as
a stateless library.

What are these magic numbers?

A comment would be helpful here.

This looks practically identical to the code in patch 2. Please factor
the common portion into the library code from patch 1 (zeroing the
registers), and share it.

There's no stop control for this PMU?

I was under the impression the core perf code could read the counter
while it was stopped, and it would unexpectedly count increasing values.

Does PERF_HES_UPTODATE stop the core from reading the counter, or is
it the responsibility of the backend to check that? I see that
thunder_uncore_read does not.

Do you need PERF_HES_STOPPED, or does that not matter due to the lack of
interrupts?

This looks practically identical to code from path 2, and all my
comments there apply.

Please factor this out into the library code in patch 1, taking into
account my comments on patch 2.

Likewise, the remainder of the file is mostly a copy+paste of patch 2.
All those comments apply equally to this patch.

Thanks,
Mark.
