There are two free running counters in IMC.
To support the second one, the previous code implicitly do
UNCORE_PMC_IDX_FIXED + 1.
So it has to deal with > FIXED case.

	case SNB_UNCORE_PCI_IMC_DATA_READS:
		base = SNB_UNCORE_PCI_IMC_DATA_READS_BASE;
		idx = UNCORE_PMC_IDX_FIXED;
		break;
	case SNB_UNCORE_PCI_IMC_DATA_WRITES:
		base = SNB_UNCORE_PCI_IMC_DATA_WRITES_BASE;
		idx = UNCORE_PMC_IDX_FIXED + 1;
		break;
	default:
		return -EINVAL;
