Thanks for the patch. One comment below.

So these are the same as the events in cavium/thunderx2-imp-def.json and
should be factored out. In fact, ARM recommends event numbers for 0x40-0xBF,
so the best thing would be to have those defined in their own file, then
have a way for the various CPU-specific .json files to pick and chose the
events they need from there.
