Description of problem: RHEL 7 currently has libpfm-4.4 with backported patches to support some additional processors. libpfm-4.7 was released in February and adds support for a number of newer processor implementations (http://perfmon2.sourceforge.net/)
Expected results: Include support for a number of additional processors with the libpfm rebase such as Intel Broadwell-DE and Intel Skylake.
Rebased to libpfm-4.7.0
Well, for now I think the coverage is reasonable, thus we may move this bug further I guess.
Tests ran on the following environments:
x86_64: BDX, NHM, NHM-EP, NHM-EX, WST, WST-EP, WST-EX, AMD16, AMD21, KNL, BDW-EP, KBL-UY, SNB, IVB, IVB-EP, SNB-EP, HSW60, HSW69, BDW-U, Avoton
ppc64: POWER7, POWER8_LPAR, POWER8_KVM, POWER7+
ppc64le: POWER8_LPAR, POWER8_KVM
aarch64: Cortex A57, Mustang X-Gene
Current version of libpfm does not seem to cause any troubles in the dependent software.
