Oh I see, we only have a single interrupt in the i.MX 6 case.

I agree, this patches are wrong.

Hm, but why does hw perf then think it needs to guess? Doesn't seem hard
to guess right if there is only one choice...

We probably need to do something like this?

+++ b/drivers/perf/arm_pmu_platform.c
@@ -122,7 +122,8 @@ static int pmu_parse_irqs(struct arm_pmu *pmu)
return pmu_parse_percpu_irq(pmu, irq);
}

- if (nr_cpu_ids != 1 && !pmu_has_irq_affinity(pdev->dev.of_node))
{
+ if ((nr_cpu_ids != 1 || num_irqs != 1) &&
+ !pmu_has_irq_affinity(pdev->dev.of_node)) {
pr_warn("no interrupt-affinity property for %pOF,
guessing.\n",
pdev->dev.of_node);
}
