It is same for arm64 too, there is no need to add an entry for every
revision change, need to add when part number changes.
This patch is not intended to add entry for revision change, the fact
of the matter is that, there is complete MIDR change (vulcan to
thunderx2) in B0.
as per current arm64
implementation(.tools/perf/arch/arm64/util/header.c), it is not
required to have any dontcare marking in mapfile for revision/variant
bits.

thanks
