SubjectRe: [PATCH 3/3] perf, uncore: enable ev_sel_ext bit for PCU.

How about:

This patch adds support for the SNB-EP PCU uncore PMU extra_sel_bit
(bit 21) which is
missing from the documentation in Table-2.75 of Intel® Xeon® Processor
E5-2600 Product Family
Uncore Performance Monitoring Guide. It is referred to later in
Table-2.81. Without this
selection bit explicitly enabled by the kernel, some events such as
COREx_TRANSITION_CYCLES do not count correctly.
