Subject: [PATCH 1/1] perf/x86/intel: Fix fixed counter check warning for some ADL

From: Kan Liang <kan.liang@...ux.intel.com>

For some ADL machine, the below fixed counter check warning may be
triggered.

[    2.010766] hw perf events fixed 5 > max(4), clipping!

Current perf unconditionally increases the number of the GP counters and
the fixed counters for a big core PMU on an ADL system, because the
number enumerated in the CPUID only reflects the common counters. The
big core may has more counters. However, ADL may have an alternative
configuration. With that configuration, the X86_FEATURE_HYBRID_CPU is
not set. The number of the GP counters and fixed counters enumerated in
the CPUID is accurate. Perf mistakenly increases the number of counters.
The warning is triggered.

Directly use the enumerated value on the system with the alternative
configuration.

Fixes: f83d2f91d259 ("perf/x86/intel: Add Alder Lake Hybrid support")
