Some ARM platforms mux the PMU interrupt of every core into a single
SPI. On such platforms if the PMU of any core except 0 raises an interrupt
then it cannot be serviced and eventually, if you are lucky, the spurious
irq detection might forcefully disable the interrupt.

On these SoCs it is not possible to determine which core raised the
interrupt so workaround this issue by queuing irqwork on the other
cores whenever the primary interrupt handler is unable to service the
interrupt.

The u8500 platform has an alternative workaround that dynamically alters
the affinity of the PMU interrupt. This workaround logic is no longer
required so the original code is removed as is the hook it relied upon.

Tested on imx6q (which has fours cores/PMUs all muxed to a single SPI)
using a simple soak, combined perf and CPU hotplug soak and using
perf fuzzer's fast_repro.sh.

Notes:
    v2 was tested on u8500 (thanks to Linus Walleij). The latest patch
    doesn't change the nature of the workaround itself but there has been
    substantial churn in the logic to decide when it can safely be deployed.
    Thus the changes were sufficient for me not to
    preserve the Tested-By:.
    
    v6:
     * Redesigned the code that decides if it is safe to deploy the
       workaround (acting on the review by Mark Rutland). Code should no
       longer race during hot unplug; previous patches sought to make the
       hot unplug race benign and the old approach had flaws and even if
       it could be made correct was tortuously hard to review.
    
    v5:
     * Removed the work queue nonsense; being completely race-free requires
       us to take a mutex or avoid dispatch from interrupt (Will Deacon).
       Replacement code can potentially race with a CPU hot unplug however
       it is careful to minimise exposure, to mitigate harmful effects and
       has fairly prominent comments.
    
    v4:
     * Ripped out the logic that tried to preserve the operation of the
       spurious interrupt detector. It was complex and not really needed
       (Will Deacon).
     * Removed a redundant memory barrier and added a comment explaining
       why it is not needed (Will Deacon).
     * Made fully safe w.r.t. hotplug by falling back to a work queue
       if there is a hotplug operation in flight when the PMU interrupt
       comes in (Will Deacon). The work queue code paths have been tested
       synthetically (by changing the if condition).
     * Posted the correct, as in compilable and tested, version of the code
       (Will Deacon).
    
    v3:
     * Removed function pointer indirection when deploying workaround code
       and reorganise the code accordingly (Mark Rutland).
     * Move the workaround state tracking into the existing percpu data
       structure (Mark Rutland).
     * Renamed cret to percpu_ret and rewrote the comment describing the
       purpose of this variable (Mark Rutland).
     * Copy the cpu_online_mask and use that to act on a consistent set of
       cpus throughout the workaround (Mark Rutland).
     * Changed "single_irq" to "muxed_spi" to more explicitly describe
       the problem.
    
    v2:
     * Fixed build problems on systems without SMP.
    
    v1:
     * Thanks to Lucas Stach, Russell King and Thomas Gleixner for
       critiquing an older, completely different way to tackle the
       same problem.

I'd quite like to see this patch sorted out too (mostly because one o my 
"go to" devices still crashes horribly whenever I try to do any 
profiling on a mainline kernel).

What other uses do you anticipate for such a list? I don't really 
understand why we would create a list when we only ever consume the 
first entry.

If there is a use for such information then why keep it as a list. 
Wouldn't the code be simpler if we add it as a field in the percpu data 
structure?

For PPIs all values would be the same, for SPIs all different, for 
broken SoCs all after [0] would be 0.

I guess the thing we are actually counting is CPUs so 
remaining_cpus_with_irq_work would therefore be extremely descriptive.

Fine. I'll change this.

I've always considered casting to void to be an executable comment... In 
this case I added it out of habit rather than because the toolchain 
complained.

Sure. I've reviewed this as far as I can.

Probably the most significant difference between enable and disable 
paths is the retrigger logic. I can't see anything there that would 
cause a problem.

Could do. Personally I prefer to be clear that this is deploying a 
workaround (i.e. implying it does something odd on a small number of 
SoCs) rather than this code being part of the normal case.

Certainly its a lot better than the benign race thing I was trying to do 
before!

Using a different handler for the workaround makes sense.

IIRC I avoided that previously because the way the code is currently 
split between perf_event.c and perf_event_cpu.c didn't make that very 
natural.

I'll look at this again.

Ok.

Do we really care about fidelity of results when servicing a perf 
interrupt causes another perf interrupt to happen ;-) ? At this point 
perf has already stopped profiling anything useful.

Ok.

If we make this unconditional then we can, as you suggest above 
somewhere, redistribute the interrupt before trying to handle it. The 
faster we can interrupt the other CPUs the higher the fidelity of the 
profile (less time for PC to change between perf event triggering and 
CPU reacting).

It certainly doesn't look easy but I will take a closer look...

 From the perf side its reasonably easy. I don't think we can return 
IRQ_NONE (we might own the h.p. lock on the CPU handling the interrupt) 
so we have to disable the interrupt. However we could probably arrange 
to re-enable it from the hotplug notifications when this is needed.

Unfortunately I'm not sure the cpu_hotplug side is so easy.
