Hey Michael,

This patch only adds support for the PERF_SAMPLE_BRANCH_COND filter, if the
over all code flow does not clearly suggest that all combinations of any of
these HW filters are invalid, then we can go with one more patch to clean
that up before or after this patch but not here in this patch. Finally the
code section here will look something like this. Does it sound good ?

static u64 power8_bhrb_filter_map(u64 branch_sample_type)
{
u64 pmu_bhrb_filter = 0;

/* BHRB and regular PMU events share the same privilege state
* filter configuration. BHRB is always recorded along with a
* regular PMU event. As the privilege state filter is handled
* in the basic PMC configuration of the accompanying regular
* PMU event, we ignore any separate BHRB specific request.
*/

/* Ignore user, kernel, hv bits */
branch_sample_type &= ~PERF_SAMPLE_BRANCH_PLM_ALL;

if (branch_sample_type == PERF_SAMPLE_BRANCH_ANY)
return pmu_bhrb_filter;


if (branch_sample_type == PERF_SAMPLE_BRANCH_ANY_CALL) {
pmu_bhrb_filter |= POWER8_MMCRA_IFM1;
return pmu_bhrb_filter;
}

if (branch_sample_type == PERF_SAMPLE_BRANCH_COND) {
pmu_bhrb_filter |= POWER8_MMCRA_IFM3;
return pmu_bhrb_filter;
}

/* Every thing else is unsupported */
return -1;
}
