perf tests: Add Intel CQM test
Peter reports that it's possible to trigger a WARN_ON_ONCE() in the Intel CQM code by combining a hardware event and an Intel CQM (software) event into a group. Unfortunately, the perf tools are not able to create this bundle and we need to manually construct a test case. For posterity, record Peter's proof of concept test case in tools/perf so that it presents a model for how we can perform architecture specific tests, or "arch tests", in perf in the future. The particular issue triggered in the test case is that when the counter for the hardware event overflows and triggers a PMI we'll read both the hardware event and the software event counters. Unfortunately, for CQM that involves performing an IPI to read the CQM event counters on all sockets, which in NMI context triggers the WARN_ON_ONCE().
