AMD also has per-core energy metering via MSR 0xc001029a, and I wonder
if you have plans to expose it to perf as well. I see it does not fit
so nicely with the existing code (as it's per-core instead of per-die).

The turbostat tool already exposes these per-core readings:

Core    CPU     Avg_MHz Busy%   Bzy_MHz TSC_MHz CorWatt PkgWatt
-       -       3951    100.00  3951    2373    54.92   30.04
0       0       3945    100.00  3945    2370    8.97    29.98
1       1       3945    100.00  3945    2370    9.11
2       2       3945    100.00  3945    2370    8.96
4       3       3946    100.00  3946    2370    9.32
5       4       3946    100.00  3946    2370    9.11
6       5       3946    100.00  3946    2370    9.39

turbostat sums the per-core energy figures to show the per-socket 54.92W
value. Though as you can see on this example, the figure is not in agreement
with the per-socket MSR you're using in your patch. Maybe the per-core
values are less reliable, but I believe I have a test that shows per-package
figure to be inaccurate as well. It would be nice if AMD clarified how the
counters work.

And, for what (little) it's worth, the series is:

Thank you.
