This patch adds the mechanic needed for user space to send PMU specific
configuration to the kernel driver using an ioctl() command.  That way
events can keep track of options that don't fit in the perf_event_attr
structure like the selection of a CoreSight sink to use for the session.

This is what configfs is for, please use that instead of a generic "send
a string to the kernel for it to parse" type of thing.  No other driver
does this (or if they do, they should not), so this driver should not do
it as well, sorry.
