Subject: [RFC PATCH v2 01/17] perf stat: Add hardware-grouping cmd option to perf stat

From: Weilin Wang <weilin.wang@...el.com>

Hardware counter and event information could be used to help creating event
groups that better utilize hardware counters and improve multiplexing.

Add a cmd option to allow user to choose this new metric grouping method.

$ perf stat -M TopdownL1 -a --hardware-grouping
