perf, x86: Improve the PEBS ABI
Rename perf_event_attr::precise to perf_event_attr::precise_ip and widen it to 2 bits. This new field describes the required precision of the PERF_SAMPLE_IP field: 0 - SAMPLE_IP can have arbitrary skid 1 - SAMPLE_IP must have constant skid 2 - SAMPLE_IP requested to have 0 skid 3 - SAMPLE_IP must have 0 skid And modify the Intel PEBS code accordingly. The PEBS implementation now supports up to precise_ip == 2, where we perform the IP fixup. Also s/PERF_RECORD_MISC_EXACT/&_IP/ to clarify its meaning, this bit should be set for each PERF_SAMPLE_IP field known to match the actual instruction triggering the event. This new scheme allows for a PEBS mode that uses the buffer for more than a single event.
