Subject: [PATCH 0/3] arm64: perf: Add support for Perf NMI interrupts

These series implement Perf NMI funxtionality and depends on
Pseudo NMI [1] which has been upstreamed.

In arm64 with GICv3, Pseudo NMI was implemented for NMI-like interruts.
That can be extended to Perf NMI which is the prerequisite for hard-lockup
detector which had already a standard interface inside Linux.

Thus the first step we need to implement perf NMI interface and make sure
it works fine.

Perf NMI has been test by dd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/null like the link [2]


Lecopzer Chen (3):
  arm_pmu: Add support for perf NMI interrupts registration
  arm64: perf: Support NMI context for perf event ISR
  arm64: Kconfig: Add support for the Perf NMI
