Andrew Murray - Dec. 5, 2018, 3:30 p.m.
Add support for the :G and :H attributes in perf by handling the
exclude_host/exclude_guest event attributes.

We notify KVM of counters that we wish to be enabled or disabled on
guest entry/exit and thus defer from starting or stopping :G events
as per the events exclude_host attribute.

With both VHE and non-VHE we switch the counters between host/guest
at EL2. We are able to eliminate counters counting host events on
the boundaries of guest entry/exit when using :G by filtering out
EL2 for exclude_host. However when using :H unless exclude_hv is set
on non-VHE then there is a small blackout window at the guest
entry/exit where host events are not captured.
