Subject: [PATCH] perf: Add missing user space support for config1/config2 v2

From: Andi Kleen <ak@...ux.intel.com>

Updated version that avoids warning/-Werror on some gcc versions
I didn't test initially. Ceterum censeo -Werror esse delendam.

-Andi

The offcore_msr perf kernel code was merged into 2.6.39-rc*,
but the user space bits were not. This made it impossible
to set the extra mask and actually do the OFFCORE profiling

This patch fixes this. It adds a new syntax ':' to raw events
to specify additional event masks. I also added support
for setting config2, even though that is not needed currently.

[Note: the original version back in time used , -- but that
actually conflicted with event lists, so now it's :]
