Subject[PATCH V5 RESEND 01/14] perf/x86/intel: Introduce the fourth fixed counter
Date
From: Kan Liang <kan.liang@linux.intel.com>

The fourth fixed counter, TOPDOWN.SLOTS, is introduced in Ice Lake.

Add MSR address and macros for the new fixed counter, which will be used
in the following patch.

Add comments to explain the event encoding rules for fixed counters.

Signed-off-by: Kan Liang <kan.liang@linux.intel.com>

Changes since V4:
- Add description regarding to event-code naming for fixed counters
