Subject: [PATCH] perf, x86: Widen Haswell OFFCORE mask

From: Andi Kleen <>

Haswell supports more bits in the offcore_rsp_* MSRs than Sandy
Bridge. Previously the Haswell code was using the Sandy Bridge
extra register definitions, which prevented users from setting
all of these bits. This in term did not allow to set some valid
SNOOP_* bits, among others.

I allowed all bits the CPU does not #GP on. This is ok because
it's protected by a model check.

Add a new extra_regs table for Haswell and use. Except for the
widened mask it is identical to Sandy Bridge.
