Subject[PATCH v3 00/10] perf: Refine barriers for AUX ring buffer
This patch series is to refine the memory barriers for AUX ring buffer.

Patches 01 ~ 04 to address the barriers usage in the kernel. The first
patch is to make clear comment for how to use the barriers between the
data store and aux_head store, this asks the driver to make sure the
data is visible. Patches 02 ~ 04 is to refine the drivers for barriers
after the data store.

Patches 05 ~ 07 is to drop the legacy __sync functions, and polish for
duplicate code and cleanup the build after SYNC_COMPARE_AND_SWAP is not

Patch 08 is to use WRITE_ONCE() for updating aux_tail.

Since the 64-bit value's atomicity is not promised on 32-bit perf, the
last two patches tries to fixup for perf tool when it runs in compat
mode. Patch 09 introduces a new global variable to indicate the kernel
runs in 64-bit mode which can be used to confirm if in compat mode;
patch 10 introduces variant functions for accessing AUX head/tail, it
can resolve the aotmicity issue for reading head pointer, and for the
tail write overflow issue it returns error to notify the tool to exit.

Have testes the patches on Arm64 Juno platform.

Changes from v2:
- Removed auxtrace_mmap__read_snapshot_head(), which has the duplicated
code with auxtrace_mmap__read_head();
- Cleanuped the build for HAVE_SYNC_COMPARE_AND_SWAP_SUPPORT (Adrian);
- Added global variable "kernel_is_64_bit" (Adrian);
- Added compat variants compat_auxtrace_mmap__{read_head|write_tail}
