Some news functions are added on HiSilicon uncore PMUs. Document them
to provide guidance on how to use them.

   $# perf stat -a -e hisi_sccl3_l3c0/rd_hit_cpipe/ sleep 5
   $# perf stat -a -e hisi_sccl3_l3c0/config=0x02/ sleep 5
+For HiSilicon uncore PMU v2 whose identifier is 0x30, the topology is the same
+as PMU v1, but some new functions are added to the hardware.
+(a) L3C PMU supports filtering by core/thread within the cluster which can be
+specified as a bitmap.
+  $# perf stat -a -e hisi_sccl3_l3c0/config=0x02,tt_core=0x3/ sleep 5
+This will only count the operations from core/thread 0 and 1 in this cluster.
+(b) Tracetag allow the user to chose to count only read, write or atomic
+operations via the tt_req parameeter in perf. The default value counts all
+operations. tt_req is 3bits, 3'b100 represents read operations, 3'b101
+represents write operations, 3'b110 represents atomic store operations and
+3'b111 represents atomic non-store operations, other values are reserved.
+  $# perf stat -a -e hisi_sccl3_l3c0/config=0x02,tt_req=0x4/ sleep 5
+This will only count the read operations in this cluster.
+(c) Datasrc allows the user to check where the data comes from. It is 5 bits.
+Some important codes are as follows:
+5'b00001: comes from L3C in this die;
+5'b01000: comes from L3C in the cross-die;
+5'b01001: comes from L3C which is in another socket;
+5'b01110: comes from the local DDR;
+5'b01111: comes from the cross-die DDR;
+5'b10000: comes from cross-socket DDR;
+etc, it is mainly helpful to find that the data source is nearest from the CPU
+cores. If datasrc_cfg is used in the multi-chips, the datasrc_skt shall be
+configured in perf command.
+  $# perf stat -a -e hisi_sccl3_l3c0/config=0xb9,datasrc_cfg=0xE/,
+  hisi_sccl3_l3c0/config=0xb9,datasrc_cfg=0xF/ sleep 5
+(d)Some HiSilicon SoCs encapsulate multiple CPU and IO dies. Each CPU die
+contains several Compute Clusters (CCLs). The I/O dies are called Super I/O
+clusters (SICL) containing multiple I/O clusters (ICLs). Each CCL/ICL in the
+SoC has a unique ID. Each ID is 11bits, include a 6-bit SCCL-ID and 5-bit
+CCL/ICL-ID. For I/O die, the ICL-ID is followed by:
+5'b00000: I/O_MGMT_ICL;
+5'b00001: Network_ICL;
+5'b00011: HAC_ICL;
+5'b10000: PCIe_ICL;
+Users could configure IDs to count data come from specific CCL/ICL, by setting
+srcid_cmd & srcid_msk, and data desitined for specific CCL/ICL by setting
+tgtid_cmd & tgtid_msk. A set bit in srcid_msk/tgtid_msk means the PMU will not
+check the bit when matching against the srcid_cmd/tgtid_cmd.
+If all of these options are disabled, it can works by the default value that
+doesn't distinguish the filter condition and ID information and will return
+the total counter values in the PMU counters.
 The current driver does not support sampling. So "perf record" is unsupported.
 Also attach to a task is unsupported as the events are all uncore.
