Subject: Update the Silvermont event files
Git-commit: 88779857662560604f85db608cf90f8609e1da6f
Patch-mainline: RELEASE_1_0_0~1
Reference: bnc#891892c3

    Update the Silvermont event files
    
    On further review the silvermont event files had a lot of problems.
    I regenerated them completely. This fixes the PEBS events, and
    fixes a range of others.
    
    The test suite passes without problems.

+name:uops_retired type:exclusive default:0x10
+	0x10 extra: all This event counts the number of micro-ops retired. The processor decodes complex macro instructions into a sequence of simpler micro-ops. Most instructions are composed of one or two micro-ops. Some instructions are decoded into longer sequences such as repeat instructions, floating point transcendental instructions, and assists. In some cases micro-op sequences are fused or whole instructions are fused into one micro-op. See other UOPS_RETIRED events for differentiating retired fused and non-fused micro-ops.
+	0x1 extra: ms This event counts the number of micro-ops retired that were supplied from MSROM.
+name:machine_clears type:exclusive default:0x8
+	0x8 extra: all Machine clears happen when something happens in the machine that causes the hardware to need to take special care to get the right answer. When such a condition is signaled on an instruction, the front end of the machine is notified that it must restart, so no more instructions will be decoded from the current path.  All instructions "older" than this one will be allowed to finish.  This instruction and all "younger" instructions must be cleared, since they must not be allowed to complete.  Essentially, the hardware waits until the problematic instruction is the oldest instruction in the machine.  This means all older instructions are retired, and all pending stores (from older instructions) are completed.  Then the new path of instructions from the front end are allowed to start into the machine.  There are many conditions that might cause a machine clear (including the receipt of an interrupt, or a trap or a fault).  All those conditions (including but not limited to MACHINE_CLEARS.MEMORY_ORDERING, MACHINE_CLEARS.SMC, and MACHINE_CLEARS.FP_ASSIST) are captured in the ANY event. In addition, some conditions can be specifically counted (i.e. SMC, MEMORY_ORDERING, FP_ASSIST).  However, the sum of SMC, MEMORY_ORDERING, and FP_ASSIST machine clears will not necessarily equal the number of ANY.
+	0x1 extra: smc This event counts the number of times that a program writes to a code section. Self-modifying code causes a severe penalty in all Intel? architecture processors.
+	0x2 extra: memory_ordering This event counts the number of times that pipeline was cleared due to memory ordering issues.
+	0x4 extra: fp_assist This event counts the number of times that pipeline stalled due to FP operations needing assists.

+	0x50 extra: not_delivered The NO_ALLOC_CYCLES.NOT_DELIVERED event is used to measure front-end inefficiencies, i.e. when front-end of the machine is not delivering micro-ops to the back-end and the back-end is not stalled. This event can be used to identify if the machine is truly front-end bound.  When this event occurs, it is an indication that the front-end of the machine is operating at less than its theoretical peak performance.  Background: We can think of the processor pipeline as being divided into 2 broader parts: Front-end and Back-end. Front-end is responsible for fetching the instruction, decoding into micro-ops (uops) in machine understandable format and putting them into a micro-op queue to be consumed by back end. The back-end then takes these micro-ops, allocates the required resources.  When all resources are ready, micro-ops are executed. If the back-end is not ready to accept micro-ops from the front-end, then we do not want to count these as front-end bottlenecks.  However, whenever we have bottlenecks in the back-end, we will have allocation unit stalls and eventually forcing the front-end to wait until the back-end is ready to receive more UOPS. This event counts the cycles only when back-end is requesting more uops and front-end is not able to provide them. Some examples of conditions that cause front-end efficiencies are: Icache misses, ITLB misses, and decoder restrictions that limit the the front-end bandwidth.
