Subject: [PATCH v3 03/23] perf: Support high-order allocations for AUX space

Some pmus (such as BTS or Intel PT without multiple-entry ToPA capability)
don't support scatter-gather and will prefer larger contiguous areas for
their output regions.

This patch adds a new pmu capability to request higher order allocations.
