_pcp_ rebased to version 4.1.0

The _pcp_ packages have been upgraded to upstream version of Performace Co-Pilot 4.1.0, which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version:

* Added a sized-based interim compression to the `pmlogger_check(1)` script to reduce data volume sizes on systems configured via the `pcp-zeroconf` package.
* Daily compressed archive metadata files.
* Changed metric labels to first class PCP metric metadata.
* Metric help text and labels are now stored in PCP archives.
* Added more Linux kernel metrics: virtual machines, TTYs, aggregate interrupt and softirq counters, af_unix/udp/tcp connection (inet/ipv6), VFS locking, login sessions, AIO, capacity per block device, and other.
* Performance Metrics Application Programming Interface (PMAPI) and the Performance Metrics Domain Agent (PMDA) API have been refactored, including promotion and deprecation of individual functions.
* Added new virtual data optimizer (VDO) metrics to `pmdadm(1)`.
* Improved integration with Zabbix agentd service with further low-level-discovery support in the `pcp2zabbix(1)` function.
* Added a new PMDA `pmdabcc(1)` for exporting BCC and eBPF trace instrumentation.
* Added a new PMDA `pmdaprometheus(1)` to consume metrics from Prometheus end-points.

Description Nathan Scott 2018-04-09 23:34:38 UTC
We've been asked to pull in new PCP Prometheus-related functionality in RHEL 7.6 - a rebase will be the way to go there.  This will also tackle the vast majority of open BZs for PCP on 7.6, which are fixed upstream in the pcp-4.x series.

We have observed only one (very) minor ABI issue with the Fedora pcp-4.x update several months ago, we do not expect this would realistically affect customers.

Comment 7 Nathan Scott 2018-08-14 21:34:34 UTC
OK, I've whittled the list down to 10.

Comment 10 Michal Kolar 2018-09-19 11:54:06 UTC
Verified against pcp-4.1.0-4.el7.
