Subject[RFC v2 0/4] Add perf interface to expose nvdimm
Patch adds performance stats reporting support for nvdimm.
Added interface includes support for pmu register/unregister
functions. A structure is added called nvdimm_pmu to be used for
adding arch/platform specific data such as supported events and pmu
event functions like event_init/add/read/del.
User could use the standard perf tool to access perf
events exposed via pmu.

Patchset includes implementation to expose IBM pseries platform nmem*
device performance stats using this interface.

Result from power9 pseries lpar with 2 nvdimm device:
command:# perf list nmem
nmem0/cchrhcnt/ [Kernel PMU event]
nmem0/cchwhcnt/ [Kernel PMU event]
nmem0/critrscu/ [Kernel PMU event]
nmem0/ctlresct/ [Kernel PMU event]
nmem0/ctlrestm/ [Kernel PMU event]
nmem0/fastwcnt/ [Kernel PMU event]
nmem0/hostlcnt/ [Kernel PMU event]
nmem0/hostldur/ [Kernel PMU event]
nmem0/hostscnt/ [Kernel PMU event]
nmem0/hostsdur/ [Kernel PMU event]
nmem0/medrcnt/ [Kernel PMU event]
nmem0/medrdur/ [Kernel PMU event]
nmem0/medwcnt/ [Kernel PMU event]
nmem0/medwdur/ [Kernel PMU event]
nmem0/memlife/ [Kernel PMU event]
nmem0/noopstat/ [Kernel PMU event]
nmem0/ponsecs/ [Kernel PMU event]
nmem1/cchrhcnt/ [Kernel PMU event]
nmem1/cchwhcnt/ [Kernel PMU event]
nmem1/critrscu/ [Kernel PMU event]
nmem1/noopstat/ [Kernel PMU event]
nmem1/ponsecs/ [Kernel PMU event]

Introduces the nvdimm_pmu structure, common function for pmu
register along with callback routine check.
Add code in arch/powerpc/platform/pseries/papr_scm.c to expose
nmem* pmu. It fills in the nvdimm_pmu structure with event attrs
and event functions and then registers the pmu by adding
callbacks to register_nvdimm_pmu.
Sysfs documentation patch
Adds cpuhotplug support.

v1 -> v2
- Removed intermediate functions nvdimm_pmu_read/nvdimm_pmu_add/
nvdimm_pmu_del/nvdimm_pmu_event_init and directly assigned
platfrom specific routines. Also add check for any NULL functions.
Suggested by: Peter Zijlstra

- Add macros for event attribute array index which can be used to
assign dynamically allocated attr_groups.

- New function 'nvdimm_pmu_mem_free' is added to free dynamic
memory allocated for attr_groups in papr_scm.c

- PMU register call moved from papr_scm_nvdimm_init() to papr_scm_probe()

- Move addition of cpu/node/cpuhp_state attributes in struct nvdimm_pmu
to patch 4 where cpu hotplug code added

- Removed device attribute from the attribute list of
add/del/read/event_init functions in nvdimm_pmu structure
as we need to assign them directly to pmu structure.

- Some optimizations/fixes from previous RFC code

Kajol Jain (4):
drivers/nvdimm: Add perf interface to expose nvdimm performance stats
powerpc/papr_scm: Add perf interface support
powerpc/papr_scm: Document papr_scm sysfs event format entries
powerpc/papr_scm: Add cpu hotplug support for nvdimm pmu device
