Patchset adds performance stats reporting support for nvdimm.
Added interface includes support for pmu register/unregister
functions. A structure is added called nvdimm_pmu to be used for
adding arch/platform specific data such as cpumask, nvdimm device
pointer and pmu event functions like event_init/add/read/del.
User could use the standard perf tool to access perf events
exposed via pmu.

Interface also defines supported event list, config fields for the
event attributes and their corresponding bit values which are exported
via sysfs. Patch 3 exposes IBM pseries platform nmem* device
performance stats using this interface.

Result from power9 pseries lpar with 2 nvdimm device:

Ex: List all event by perf list

        Introduces the nvdimm_pmu structure
        Adds common interface to add arch/platform specific data
        includes nvdimm device pointer, pmu data along with
        pmu event functions. It also defines supported event list
        and adds attribute groups for format, events and cpumask.
        It also adds code for cpu hotplug support.
        Add code in arch/powerpc/platform/pseries/papr_scm.c to expose
        nmem* pmu. It fills in the nvdimm_pmu structure with pmu name,
        capabilities, cpumask and event functions and then registers
        the pmu by adding callbacks to register_nvdimm_pmu.
        Sysfs documentation patch

v4 -> v5:
- Remove multiple variables defined in nvdimm_pmu structure include
  name and pmu functions(event_int/add/del/read) as they are just
  used to copy them again in pmu variable. Now we are directly doing
  this step in arch specific code as suggested by Dan Williams.

- Remove attribute group field from nvdimm pmu structure and
  defined these attribute groups in common interface which
  includes format, event list along with cpumask as suggested by
  Dan Williams.
  Since we added static defination for attrbute groups needed in
  common interface, removes corresponding code from papr.

- Add nvdimm pmu event list with event codes in the common interface.

- Remove Acked-by/Reviewed-by/Tested-by tags as code is refactored
  to handle review comments from Dan.

- Make nvdimm_pmu_free_hotplug_memory function static as reported
  by kernel test robot, also add corresponding Reported-by tag.

- Link to the patchset v4:

v3 -> v4
- Rebase code on top of current papr_scm code without any logical

- Added Acked-by tag from Peter Zijlstra and Reviewed by tag
  from Madhavan Srinivasan.

- Link to the patchset v3:

v2 -> v3
- Added Tested-by tag.

- Fix nvdimm mailing list in the ABI Documentation.

- Link to the patchset v2:

v1 -> v2
- Fix hotplug code by adding pmu migration call
  incase current designated cpu got offline. As
  pointed by Peter Zijlstra.

- Removed the retun -1 part from cpu hotplug offline

- Link to the patchset v1:
