Subject: [PATCH 0/2] perf tools: add 'perf irq' to measure the hardware interrupts

When the hardware interrupt processing function is executed, the interrupt and 
preemption of current cpu are disabled. As a result, the task is suspended.
The execution of the hardware processing function takes a long time
(for example 5 ms), will affect the task scheduling performance.

This patches provides the 'perf irq' command to trace and calculate the time
consumed of the hardware irq function.


[verse]
'perf irq' {record|timeconsume|script}

There are several variants of 'perf irq':

  'perf irq record <command>' to record the irq handler events
  of an arbitrary workload.

  'perf irq script' to see a detailed trace of the workload that
   was recorded (aliased to 'perf script' for now).

  'perf irq timeconsume' to calculate the time consumed by each
   hardware interrupt processing function.

    Example usage:
        perf irq record -- sleep 1
        perf irq timeconsume

   By default it shows the individual irq events, including the irq name,
   cpu(execute the hardware interrupt processing function), time consumed,
   entry time and exit time for the each hardware irq:
