Subject: [PATCH V4 05/23] perf/x86/lbr: Avoid reading the LBRs when adaptive PEBS handles them

From: Andi Kleen <ak@...ux.intel.com>

With adaptive PEBS the CPU can directly supply the LBR information,
so we don't need to read it again. But the LBRs still need to be
enabled. Add a special count to the cpuc that distinguishes these
two cases, and avoid reading the LBRs unnecessarily when PEBS is
active.
