The previous version can be found at:
v1: https://lkml.kernel.org/r/20191126163630.17300-1-roman.sudarikov@linux.intel.com

Changes in this revision are:
v1 -> v2:
- Fixed process related issues;
- This patch set includes kernel support for IIO stack to PMON mapping;
- Stephane raised concerns regarding output format which may require
code changes in the user space part of the feature only. We will continue
output format discussion in the context of user space update.

Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor family (code name Skylake-SP) makes
significant changes in the integrated I/O (IIO) architecture. The new
solution introduces IIO stacks which are responsible for managing traffic
between the PCIe domain and the Mesh domain. Each IIO stack has its own
PMON block and can handle either DMI port, x16 PCIe root port, MCP-Link
or various built-in accelerators. IIO PMON blocks allow concurrent
monitoring of I/O flows up to 4 x4 bifurcation within each IIO stack.

Software is supposed to program required perf counters within each IIO
stack and gather performance data. The tricky thing here is that IIO PMON
reports data per IIO stack but users have no idea what IIO stacks are -
they only know devices which are connected to the platform.

Understanding IIO stack concept to find which IIO stack that particular
IO device is connected to, or to identify an IIO PMON block to program
for monitoring specific IIO stack assumes a lot of implicit knowledge
about given Intel server platform architecture.

This patch set introduces:
1. An infrastructure for exposing an Uncore unit to Uncore PMON mapping
through sysfs-backend;
2. A new --iiostat mode in perf stat to provide I/O performance metrics
per I/O device.

Usage examples:

1. List all devices below IIO stacks
./perf stat --iiostat=show

Sample output w/o libpci:

S0-RootPort0-uncore_iio_0<00:00.0>
S1-RootPort0-uncore_iio_0<81:00.0>
S0-RootPort1-uncore_iio_1<18:00.0>
S1-RootPort1-uncore_iio_1<86:00.0>
S1-RootPort1-uncore_iio_1<88:00.0>
S0-RootPort2-uncore_iio_2<3d:00.0>
S1-RootPort2-uncore_iio_2<af:00.0>
S1-RootPort3-uncore_iio_3<da:00.0>

Sample output with libpci:

S0-RootPort0-uncore_iio_0<00:00.0 Sky Lake-E DMI3 Registers>
S1-RootPort0-uncore_iio_0<81:00.0 Ethernet Controller X710 for 10GbE SFP+>
S0-RootPort1-uncore_iio_1<18:00.0 Omni-Path HFI Silicon 100 Series [discrete]>
S1-RootPort1-uncore_iio_1<86:00.0 Ethernet Controller XL710 for 40GbE QSFP+>
S1-RootPort1-uncore_iio_1<88:00.0 Ethernet Controller XL710 for 40GbE QSFP+>
S0-RootPort2-uncore_iio_2<3d:00.0 Ethernet Connection X722 for 10GBASE-T>
S1-RootPort2-uncore_iio_2<af:00.0 Omni-Path HFI Silicon 100 Series [discrete]>
S1-RootPort3-uncore_iio_3<da:00.0 NVMe Datacenter SSD [Optane]>

2. Collect metrics for all I/O devices below IIO stack

./perf stat --iiostat -- dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/nvme0n1 bs=1M oflag=direct
357708+0 records in
357707+0 records out
375083606016 bytes (375 GB, 349 GiB) copied, 215.381 s, 1.7 GB/s

Performance counter stats for 'system wide':

device Inbound Read(MB) Inbound Write(MB) Outbound Read(MB) Outbound Write(MB)
00:00.0 0 0 0 0
81:00.0 0 0 0 0
18:00.0 0 0 0 0
86:00.0 0 0 0 0
88:00.0 0 0 0 0
3b:00.0 3 0 0 0
3c:03.0 3 0 0 0
3d:00.0 3 0 0 0
af:00.0 0 0 0 0
da:00.0 358559 44 0 22

3. Collect metrics for comma separted list of I/O devices

./perf stat --iiostat=da:00.0 -- dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/nvme0n1 bs=1M oflag=direct
381555+0 records in
381554+0 records out
400088457216 bytes (400 GB, 373 GiB) copied, 374.044 s, 1.1 GB/s

Performance counter stats for 'system wide':

device Inbound Read(MB) Inbound Write(MB) Outbound Read(MB) Outbound Write(MB)
da:00.0 382462 47 0 23

374.045775505 seconds time elapsed
