Subject: [PATCH V7] perf/x86: add sysfs entry to freeze counter on SMI

From: Kan Liang <Kan.liang@...el.com>

Currently, the SMIs are visible to all performance counters. Because
many users want to measure everything including SMIs. But in some
cases, the SMI cycles should not be count. For example, to calculate
the cost of SMI itself. So a knob is needed.

When setting FREEZE_WHILE_SMM bit in IA32_DEBUGCTL, all performance
counters will be effected. There is no way to do per-counter freeze
on SMI. So it should not use the per-event interface (e.g. ioctl or
event attribute) to set FREEZE_WHILE_SMM bit.

Adds sysfs entry /sys/device/cpu/freeze_on_smi to set FREEZE_WHILE_SMM
bit in IA32_DEBUGCTL. When set, freezes perfmon and trace messages
while in SMM.
Value has to be 0 or 1. It will be applied to all processors.
Also serialize the entire setting so we don't get multiple concurrent
threads trying to update to different values.

why do we need an open coded version of __flip_bit() instead of
reusing that?
 - msr_set_bit/msr_clear_bit is enough for our requirement.
   There is no extra work needed.
   __flip_bit is static inline. It cannot be used directly. If we
   expose it, there will be two sets of interfaces to flip MSR bit.
   I think it's too much.

Changes since V6:
 - fix sprintf warnning. Sorry for the noise.

Changes since V5:
 - Don't force unsigned long to bool. That will be a problem on LE
   machines.

Changes since V4:
 - drop msr_flip_bit function
 - Use on_each_cpu() which already include all the needed protection
 - Some small changes according to the comments
