That's up to you. As long as it's _somewhere_ under drivers/perf/hisilicon/,
then I'm not too fussed.

I was just thinking along the lines of:

struct hisi_pcie_reg_pair {
	u16 lo;
	u16 hi;
};

static struct hisi_pcie_reg_pair
hisi_pcie_parse_reg_value(struct hisi_pcie_pmu *pcie_pmum u32 reg_off)
{
	u32 val = readl_relaxed(pcie_pmu->base + reg_off);
	struct hisi_pcie_reg_pair regs = {
		.lo = val,
		.hi = val >> 16,
	};

	return regs;
}

Does that work?

Just remove the macro and replace it's single user with sizeof(u32) * x

Why can't you expose the packet counter as an extra event to userspace?
