Hi,

After fixing the arm64 Pseudo-NMIs, I'm dusting off this series.

The series makes the arm_pmu driver use NMIs for the perf interrupt when
NMIs are available on the platform (currently, only arm64 + GICv3).

* Patches 1 to 4 remove the need to use spinlocks for the Arm PMU
  driver for Armv7 and Armv8 (aarch64).
* Patches 5 moves the locking to Armv6 specific code which is the sole
  user
* Patches 6 and 7 make the PMU interrupt handler NMI-safe
* Patches 8 and 9 enable using pseudo-NMI for the PMU interrupt when
  the feature is available

Changes since v3[3]:
- Added tags
- Fix build issue for perf_event_v6
- Don't disable preemption in pmu->enable()
- Always rely on IPI_IRQ_WORK to run the queued work
- Fixed typos + cleanups

Changes since v2[2]:
- Rebased on recent linux-next (next-20190708)
- Fixed a number of bugs with indices (reported by Wei)
- Minor style fixes

Changes since v1[3]:
- Rebased on v5.1-rc1
- Pseudo-NMI has changed a lot since then, use the (now merged) NMI API
- Remove locking from armv7 perf_event
- Use locking only in armv6 perf_event
- Use direct counter/type registers insted of selector register for armv8
