Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo July 30, 2019, 2:54 a.m. UTC
From: Jiri Olsa <jolsa@kernel.org>

Rename struct perf_evlist to struct evlist, so we don't have a name
clash when we add struct perf_evlist in libperf.

Committer notes:

Added fixes to build on arm64, from Jiri and from me
(tools/perf/util/cs-etm.c)
