SubjectRe: [PATCH V7 00/18] KVM: x86/pmu: Add *basic* support to enable guest PEBS via DS

It needs new hardware facility only available on Intel Ice Lake Server platforms. This patch set enables the basic PEBS feature for KVM guests on ICX.

Only on the host?
I cannot use pebs unless try with "echo 0 > /proc/sys/kernel/watchdog"
both on the host and guest on ICX.

In this patchset, we want to start with the fast path to get the basic guest PEBS enabled while keeping the slow path disabled. More focused discussion on the slow path [1] is planned to be put to another patchset in the next step.
