I think this can be cleaned up to make the code more clear. Notice the
duplication of following snippet in __mon_event_count():
rr->val += tval;
return 0;

I do not see any need to check the event id before doing the above. That
leaves the bulk of the switch just needed for the rr->first handling that
can be moved to resctrl_arch_reset_rmid().

Something like:

void resctrl_arch_reset_rmid(struct rdt_resource *r, struct rdt_domain *d, ...
{
...
struct arch_mbm_state *am;
struct mbm_state *m;
u64 val = 0;
int ret;

m = get_mbm_state(d, rmid, eventid); /* get_mbm_state() to be created */
if (m)
memset(m, 0, sizeof(*m));

am = get_arch_mbm_state(hw_dom, rmid, eventid);
if (am) {
memset(am, 0, sizeof(*am));
/* Record any initial, non-zero count value. */
ret = __rmid_read(rmid, eventid, &val);
if (!ret)
am->prev_msr = val;
}

}

Having this would be helpful as reference to Babu's usage.

Also please note that I changed the __rmid_read(). There is no need
to require each __rmid_read() caller to test MSR bits for validity, that
can be contained within __rmid_read().

Something like below remains:

static int __mon_event_count(u32 rmid, struct rmid_read *rr)
{

...

if (rr->first) {
resctrl_arch_reset_rmid(rr->r, rr->d, rmid, rr->evtid);
return 0;
}

rr->err = resctrl_arch_rmid_read(rr->r, rr->d, rmid, rr->evtid, &tval);
if (rr->err)
return rr->err;

rr->val += tval;
return 0;

}

What do you think?
