Subject[PATCH v3 03/12] perf/core: add PERF_PMU_CAP_NO_EXCLUDE for exclusion incapable PMUs
Date
Many PMU drivers do not have the capability to exclude counting events
that occur in specific contexts such as idle, kernel, guest, etc. These
drivers indicate this by returning an error in their event_init upon
testing the events attribute flags. This approach is error prone and
often inconsistent.

Let's instead allow PMU drivers to advertise their inability to exclude
based on context via a new capability: PERF_PMU_CAP_NO_EXCLUDE. This
allows the perf core to reject requests for exclusion events where
there is no support in the PMU.
