Subject: [RFC PATCH 2/2] powerpc/perf: Implement get_cpu_str()


[RFC PATCH 2/2] powerpc/perf: Implement get_cpu_str()

get_cpu_str() returns a string identifying the CPU type on the system.
This string is then used to locate a cached JSON file which defines
the list of PMU events supported by the CPU.

Eg: if get_cpu_str() returns "power8", the perf tool would refer to the
PMU events defined in ~/.cache/pmu-events/power8.json.
