Subject[PATCH v2 00/14] perf arm-spe: Refactor decoding & dumping flow
The prominent issue for the SPE trace decoding and dumping is the packet
header and payload values are hard coded with numbers and it's not
readable and difficult to maintain; and has other minor issues, e.g. the
packet length (header + payload) calculation is not correct for some
packet types, and the dumping flow misses to support specific sub
classes for operation packet, etc.

So this patch set is to refactor the Arm SPE decoding SPE with:
- Patches 01, 02 are minor cleans up;
- Patches 03, 04 are used to fix and polish the packet and payload
length calculation;
- Patch 05 is to add a helper to wrap up printing strings, this can
avoid bunch of duplicate code lines;
- Patches 06 ~ 12 are used to refactor decoding for different types
packet one by one (address packet, context packet, counter packet,
event packet, operation packet);
- Patch 13 is coming from Andre to dump memory tagging;
- Patch 14 is coming from Wei Li to add decoding for ARMv8.3
extension, in this version it has been improved to use defined
macros, also is improved for failure handling and commit log.

This patch set is cleanly applied on the top of perf/core branch
with commit a55b7bb1c146 ("perf test: Fix msan uninitialized use."),
and the patches have been verified on Hisilicon D06 platform and I
manually inspected the dumping result.

Changes from v1:
- Heavily rewrote the patch 05 for refactoring printing strings; this
is fundamental change, so adjusted the sequence for patches and moved
the printing string patch ahead from patch 10 (v1) to patch 05;
- Changed to use GENMASK_ULL() for bits mask;
- Added Andre's patch 13 for dumping memory tagging;
- Refined patch 12 for adding sub classes for Operation packet, merged
some commit log from Andre's patch, which allows commit log and code
to be more clear; Added "Co-developed-by: Andre Przywara" tag to
reflect this.
