Qualcomm's perf driver is out-of-tree along with most of their other
drivers. Their drivers add up to a LOT of code shared across over a
billion mobile devices, leading to the focus on them. It also helps that
there are bounties for Nexus devices, so there are multi thousand dollar
rewards for bugs in the Qualcomm drivers compared to nothing for other
platforms / drivers. Now that perf is only available via ADB debugging,
further perf bugs no longer technically qualify for their bounties (but
they might still pay, I don't know).
