Subject[PATCH] Perf stat: Fix the ratio comments of cache miss-events
Date
Perf stat displays miss ratio of L1-dcache, L1-icache, dTLB cache,
iTLB cache and LL-cache, while the comments for them seem a bit
misleading. Take L1-dcache for example, its miss ratio
is caculated as "L1-dcache-load-misses/L1-dcache-loads". So "of all
L1-dcache hits" is unsuitable to describe it, and "of all L1-dcache
accesses/references" seems better.

285,132,521 cache-misses # 53.696 % of all cache refs [83.34%]
531,015,219 cache-references [83.20%]
220,465,183 LLC-load-misses # 72.33% of all LL-cache miss [83.44%]
^^^^
304,787,745 LLC-loads [66.60%]

There is an old patch here https://lkml.org/lkml/2019/11/16/37, but
seems not upstreamed yet. This patch follows suggestions by Arnaldo.
But one difference is using "refs" to follow the convention because
there is comment also for cache-misses event which uses
"of all cache refs".
The comments of L1-icache, dTLB cache, iTLB cache and LL-cache are
fixed in the same way.

P.S. Liu and Andi if you don't mind this patch adds your Reviewed-by
and Signed-off-by, thanks.
