Merge tag 'arm64-perf' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/arm64/linux
Pull arm perf updates from Will Deacon: "I have another mixed bag of ARM-related perf patches here. It's about 25% CPU and 75% interconnect, but with drivers/bus/ languishing without an obvious maintainer or tree, Olof and I agreed to keep all of these PMU patches together. I suspect a whole load of code from drivers/bus/arm-* can be moved under drivers/perf/, so that's on the radar for the future. Summary: - Initial support for ARMv8.1 CPU PMUs - Support for the CPU PMU in Cavium ThunderX - CPU PMU support for systems running 32-bit Linux in secure mode - Support for the system PMU in ARM CCI-550 (Cache Coherent Interconnect)" * tag 'arm64-perf' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/arm64/linux: (26 commits) drivers/perf: arm_pmu: avoid NULL dereference when not using devicetree arm64: perf: Extend ARMV8_EVTYPE_MASK to include PMCR.LC arm-cci: remove unused variable arm-cci: don't return value from void function arm-cci: make private functions static arm-cci: CoreLink CCI-550 PMU driver arm-cci500: Rearrange PMU driver for code sharing with CCI-550 PMU arm-cci: CCI-500: Work around PMU counter writes arm-cci: Provide hook for writing to PMU counters arm-cci: Add helper to enable PMU without synchornising counters arm-cci: Add routines to save/restore all counters arm-cci: Get the status of a counter arm-cci: write_counter: Remove redundant check arm-cci: Delay PMU counter writes to pmu::pmu_enable arm-cci: Refactor CCI PMU enable/disable methods arm-cci: Group writes to counter arm-cci: fix handling cpumask_any_but return value arm-cci: simplify sysfs attr handling drivers/perf: arm_pmu: implement CPU_PM notifier arm64: dts: Add Cavium ThunderX specific PMU ...
