Subject[PATCH v4] Use more flexible pattern matching for CPU identification for mapfile.csv
Date
The powerpc cpuid information includes chip revision information.
Changes between chip revisions are usually minor bug fixes and usually
do not affect the operation of the performance monitoring hardware.
The original mapfile.csv matching requires enumerating every possible
cpuid string. When a new minor chip revision is produced a new entry
has to be added to the mapfile.csv and the code recompiled to allow
perf to have the implementation specific perf events for this new
minor revision. For users of various distibutions of Linux having to
wait for a new release of the kernel's perf tool to be built with
these trivial patches is inconvenient.

Using regular expressions rather than exactly string matching of the
entire cpuid string allows developers to write mapfile.csv files that
do not require patches and recompiles for each of these minor version
changes. If special cases need to be made for some particular
versions, they can be placed earlier in the mapfile.csv file before
the more general matches.
