Subject: [PATCH v2] powerpc/perf_events: Implement
 perf_arch_fetch_caller_regs

This implements a powerpc version of perf_arch_fetch_caller_regs.
It's implemented in assembly because that way we can be sure there
isn't a stack frame for perf_arch_fetch_caller_regs.  If it was in
C, gcc might or might not create a stack frame for it, which would
affect the number of levels we have to skip.

With this, we see results from perf record -e lock:lock_acquire like
this:
