Please re-write this series to have RISC-V PMU driver as a regular
platform driver as drivers/perf/riscv_pmu.c.

The PMU related sources will have to be removed from arch/riscv.

Based on implementation of final drivers/perf/riscv_pmu.c we will
come-up with drivers/perf/riscv_sbi_pmu.c driver for SBI perf counters.

Anup
