ok, then my original naming was more appropriate.
i.e have josn files defined in SoC directory, instead of having single
vendor directory for all SoC json files.

like,
          pmu-events/arch/arm64/thunderx2
          pmu-events/arch/arm64/thunderx3
          pmu-events/arch/arm64/hip08
          pmu-events/arch/arm64/hip09
