ARM: 7441/1: perf: return -EOPNOTSUPP if requested mode exclusion is unavailable
We currently return -EPERM if the user requests mode exclusion that is not supported by the CPU. This looks pretty confusing from userspace and is inconsistent with other architectures (ppc, x86). This patch returns -EOPNOTSUPP instead. Signed-off-by: Will Deacon <will.deacon@arm.com> Signed-off-by: Russell King <rmk+kernel@arm.linux.org.uk>
