Hi Russell,

Please can you pull these perf updates for 3.15?

The highlights are:

  * Support for Qualcomm Krait processors (run perf on your phone!)
  * Support for Cortex-A12 (run perf stat on your FPGA!)
  * Support for perf_sample_event_took, allowing us to automatically decrease
    the sample rate if we can't handle the PMU interrupts quickly enough
    (run perf record on your FPGA!).

As part of the Krait support, we also gain support for PPI generation by
the PMU.




The following changes since commit 6d0abeca3242a88cab8232e4acd7e2bf088f3bc2:
