Subject[RFC PATCH 00/10] Add support for the ARMv8.2 Statistical Profiling Extension
Date
Hi all,

This RFC series adds support for the ARMv8.2 Statistical Profiling
Extension (SPE) to Linux in the form of a perf PMU driver. There aren't
any userspace patches for perf tool yet, but Kim (on CC) is working on
those and I thought posting the kernel side as an RFC was still worth it
in the meantime.

The series is structured as:

1-2: Tweak arm64 CPU feature detection to support heterogeneous
configurations where CPUs have differ in debug and profiling
capabilities.

3-4: Add EL2 SPE support (KVM world switch and initialisation)

5-6: Export some functions to modules, so this driver can be built as
a loadable module.

7-8: Introduce PERF_AUX_FLAG_COLLISION

9-10: Add the actual PMU driver and devicetree binding

Like intel-pt, the interface to the PMU is via the perf AUX area and the
profiling hardware writes directly to the pages mapped by userspace. The
hardware capabilities (caps/) and config field encodings (format/) are
advertised via sysfs.

Patches based on v4.10-rc2 and tested on an ARM FastModel.

Will Deacon (10):
arm64: cpufeature: allow for version discrepancy in PMU
implementations
arm64: cpufeature: Don't enforce system-wide SPE capability
arm64: KVM: Save/restore the host SPE state when entering/leaving a VM
arm64: head.S: Enable EL1 (host) access to SPE when entered at EL2
genirq: export irq_get_percpu_devid_partition to modules
perf/core: Export AUX buffer helpers to modules
perf: Directly pass PERF_AUX_* flags to perf_aux_output_end
perf/core: Add PERF_AUX_FLAG_COLLISION to report colliding samples
drivers/perf: Add support for ARMv8.2 Statistical Profiling Extension
dt-bindings: Document devicetree binding for ARM SPE
