No problem, clearly room for improvement!

The point I was trying to get across here is mbm_bw_count() is holding a hardware value,
which means it isn't architecture agnostic. Calculating bytes first paves the way to using
an arch helper that returns bytes.

This was originally later in the series, and it looks like it got damaged during a rebase.
I've rewritten it to calculate bandwidth based on the value read by the previous
__mon_event_count(), this is simpler and less noisy for the rest of the series.



Thanks,

James
