In addition to the X-Gene ARM CPU performance monitoring unit (PMU), there
are PMU for the SoC system devices such as L3 cache(s), I/O bridge(s),
memory controller bridges and memory. These PMU devices are loosely
architected to follow the same model as the PMU for ARM cores.

 * Remove index property use in PMU device sub nodes

 * Use bitmask for event asignned counter mask pmu_dev->cntr_assign_mask
 * Remove unnecessary spinlocks in perf add/del operations
 * Remove unnecessary condition checks
 * Enforce CPU assignment to one CPU for perf operarations
 * Set the task_ctx_nr to perf_invalid_context for perf driver
 * Remove irrelevant pt_rregs
 * Change perf sysfs attributes to be fixed instead of dynamic
 * Fix checking for an ACPI companion device instead of EFI enable
 * Add documentation for config/config1 fields format and perf tool example
