      ARM: 6205/1: perf: ensure counter delta is treated as unsigned · 446a5a8b
      Will Deacon authored
      
      
      Hardware performance counters on ARM are 32-bits wide but atomic64_t
      variables are used to represent counter data in the hw_perf_event structure.
      
      The armpmu_event_update function right-shifts a signed 64-bit delta variable
      and adds the result to the event count. This can lead to shifting in sign-bits
      if the MSB of the 32-bit counter value is set. This results in perf output
      such as:
      
       Performance counter stats for 'sleep 20':

      This patch ensures that the delta value is treated as unsigned so that the
      right shift sets the upper bits to zero.
