Subject: [PATCH] perf, x86: Add hw_watchdog_set_attr() in a sake of nmi-watchdog on P4
Date: Thu, 23 Jun 2011 16:49:18 +0400
Message-ID: <20110623124918.GC13050@sun> (raw)

Due to restriction and specifics of Netburst PMU we need a separated
event for NMI watchdog. In particular every Netburst event consume not
just a counter and config register, but also an additional ESCR register.
Since ESCR registers are grouped upon counters (i.e. if ESCR is occupied
for some event there is no room for another event to enter until it's
released) we need to pick up "least" used ESCR (or most available)
for nmi-watchdog purpose -- MSR_P4_CRU_ESCR2/3 was chosen.

With this patch nmi-watchdog and perf top should be able to run simultaneously.

v2: Add a comment about non-sleeping clockticks spotted by Ingo Molnar.
v3: Peter Zijlstra and Stephane Eranian pointed out that making new
    event global visible (up to userspace) will bring problems supporting
    this ABI in future. So now this event is x86 specific and hidden
    from userspace.
v4: Stephane proposed to use __weak arch specific callback instead of
    new hidden generic event.

Note, I dont have access to P4 machine at moment so help in testing
would be highly appreciated.
