Whilst I'm ok with the idea, we're currently in the process of moving the
ARM and arm64 PMU drivers out into drivers/perf/, so this is likely to
conflict horribly with that work.

Christoffer/Marc: if you end up wanting to queue this for 4.3, give me a
shout and I'll try to create a stable branch you can use as a base (but
it's likely to contain a whole heap of stuff you don't want...).
