Subject: [PATCH 1/8] powerpc/perf/hv-24x7: Fix inconsistent output values incase multiple hv-24x7 events run

Commit 2b206ee6b0df ("powerpc/perf/hv-24x7: Display change in counter
values")' added to print _change_ in the counter value rather then raw
value for 24x7 counters. Incase of transactions, the event count
is set to 0 at the beginning of the transaction. It also sets
the event's prev_count to the raw value at the time of initialization.
Because of setting event count to 0, we are seeing some weird behaviour,
whenever we run multiple 24x7 events at a time.

For example:

command#: ./perf stat -e "{hv_24x7/PM_MCS01_128B_RD_DISP_PORT01,chip=0/,
			   hv_24x7/PM_MCS01_128B_RD_DISP_PORT01,chip=1/}"
	  		   -C 0 -I 1000 sleep 100

     1.000121704                120 hv_24x7/PM_MCS01_128B_RD_DISP_PORT01,chip=0/
     1.000121704                  5 hv_24x7/PM_MCS01_128B_RD_DISP_PORT01,chip=1/
     2.000357733                  8 hv_24x7/PM_MCS01_128B_RD_DISP_PORT01,chip=0/
     2.000357733                 10 hv_24x7/PM_MCS01_128B_RD_DISP_PORT01,chip=1/

Getting these large values in case we do -I.

As we are setting event_count to 0, for interval case, overall event_count is not
coming in incremental order. As we may can get new delta lesser then previous count.
Because of which when we print intervals, we are getting negative value which create
these large values.

This patch rather then setting event_count to 0, it change local64_set to
local64_add in function 'h_24x7_event_read'.

With this patch
In power9 platform

command#: ./perf stat -e "{hv_24x7/PM_MCS01_128B_RD_DISP_PORT01,chip=0/,
		           hv_24x7/PM_MCS01_128B_RD_DISP_PORT01,chip=1/}"
