Arch requirements
-----------------
If your architecture does not have hardware performance metrics, you can
still use the generic software counters based on hrtimers for sampling.
So to start with, in order to add HAVE_PERF_COUNTERS to your Kconfig, you
will need at least this:
- asm/perf_counter.h - a basic stub will suffice at first
- support for atomic64 types (and associated helper functions)
- set_perf_counter_pending() implemented
If your architecture does have hardware capabilities, you can override the
weak stub hw_perf_counter_init() to register hardware counters.
