IIUC there's a pretty deliberate split with all the actual reading of the AMU
living in arch/arm64/kernel/topolgy.c, and the driver code being (relatively)
generic.

We already have code in arch/arm64/kernel/topolgy.c to read counters on a
specific CPU; why can't e reuse that (and avoid exporting cpu_has_amu_feat())?

Mark.
