Subject[PATCH 0/4] Enable display of partial and empty SVE predicates from Arm SPE data

I'm submitting this on behalf of German who moved on to work on other
things in Arm before he could finish it off.

The predicate information is available on SPE samples from
Armv8.3 (FEAT_SPEv1p1), this could be useful info for profiling SVE
code as partial and empty predicates indicate that the full vector
width isn't being used. There is a good example in the last commit

Though currently, there isn't a suitable field to store the info
on Perf samples, so this change also adds a new SIMD field.
This field could be used by other architectures, but currently there
is only one bit reserved to identify SVE. It's only added to
struct perf_sample on the userspace side, and isn't part of the kernel
ABI, so it doesn't survive a perf inject. Although this is the
same behavior for some other fields like branch flags, so I don't
think it should be an issue to do something similar here. Perhaps in
the future we could make sure everything that is synthesised from
auxtrace data also makes it back into the new Perf inject file without
being lost.

German Gomez (4):
perf event: Add simd_flags field to perf_sample
perf arm-spe: Refactor arm-spe to support operation packet type
perf arm-spe: Add SVE flags to the SPE samples
perf report: Add 'simd' sort field
