This iteration split the __get_cpuid() work in the main Makefile and 
moves the driver configuration code out of file evlist.c and evsel.c so
that `perf test python` can succeed.  Other than moving things around
this set is keeping the code and functionality unchanged. 

Also tested with `make -C tool/perf build-test`


Original blurb:

This patchset adds the possiblity of specifying PMU driver configuration
directly from the perf command line.  Anything that falls within the
event specifiers '/.../' and that is preceded by the '@' symbol is
treated as a configurable.  Two formats are supported, @cfg and

For example:

perf record -e some_event/@cfg1/ ...


perf record -e some_event/@cfg2=config/ ...


perf record -e some_event/@cfg1,@cfg2=config/ ...

The above are all valid configuration and will see the strings 'cfg1'
and 'cfg2=config' sent to the PMU driver for parsing and interpretation
using the existing ioctl() mechanism.

The primary customers for this feature are the CoreSight drivers where
the selection of a sink (where trace data is accumulated) needs to be
done in a previous, and separated step, from the launching of the perf

As such something that used to be a two-step process:

# echo 1 > /sys/bus/coresight/devices/20070000.etr/enable_sink
# perf record -e cs_etm//u --per-thread  uname

is integrated in a single command:

# perf record -e cs_etm/@20070000.etr/u --per-thread  uname

Changes for V8:
- Splitted what used to be 1/5 in the V7 patchset. 
- Moved code around to avoid failing 'perf test pythong'.
- Tested with `make -C tool/perf build-test`.

Changes for V7:
- Got rid of a miscellaneous debug message.
- Rebased to v4.8-rc4
- Added Jiri Olsa's Acked-by.

Changes for V6:
- Using sysFS rather than an ioctl() to communicate command line
  parameters to the CoreSight PMU.

Changes for V5:
- Made commit log in 5/9 more descriptive.
- Addressed missing return code in builtin-top.c.
- Overhauled the kernel portion to do parsing in the core.

Changes for V4:
- Pushing PMU driver configuration for 'perf top'.
- Rebased to the latest perf/core branch[1]. 

Changes for V3:
- Added comment for function drv_str() that explains the reason for
  keeping the entire token intact.
- Added driver config terms to the existing list of config terms.
- Added documenation for driver specific configuration.
- Pushing PMU driver configuration for 'perf stat' as well.  
- Preventing users from selecting a sink from sysFS _and_ perf.

Changes for V2:
- Rebased to [1] as per Jiri's request.
