Subject[PATCH v3 0/4] remove unnecessary IPI reading uncore events
This patch series adds a new flag to the struct perf_event
(and a flag field to store it) to allow a PMU to tag a CPU or
cgroup event as readable from any CPU in the same package and not
just the CPU where the is currently active.

This capability is used with uncore events to potentially avoid
an unnecessary IPI when executing perf_event_read.

A previous version of this change was introduced in the last Intel's
CQM/CMT driver series (under review), but now we present it separately
here since it is also useful for other uncore events.

The next version of Intel CQM/CMT will add 3 new flags that use
the pmu_event_flags field (added in patch 03 in this series).

Patch 02 generalizes event->group_flags so that new flags can use it
in a similar way that PERF_GROUP_SOFTWARE was used.

Patches rebased at peterz/queue/perf/core

Changes in v3:
- Rebase to branch's tip.
- Add warning to patch 01, in response to Ingo Molnar's comments.
- Check for Active state in perf_event_read, as suggested by
Nilay Vaish (already posted in v2's email thread).
Changes in v2:
- Change logic to use event->group_flags instead of individually
testing sibling in perf_event_read.
- Remove erroneous read of inactive events.

David Carrillo-Cisneros (4):
perf/core: check return value of perf_event_read IPI
perf/core: generalize event->group_flags
perf/core: introduce PMU_EV_CAP_READ_ACTIVE_PKG
perf/x86: use PMUEF_READ_CPU_PKG in uncore events
