So uncore is something unholy complicated and different for each cpu,
although the newer chips seems to have limited the variation somewhat.

I would suggest you start with the offcore bits, those are in the SDM.

We have some numa cache events, but if those don't work for you you
might want to look at the offcore code we have in the kernel to help
construct your own events.

I Cc'ed you on a patch series cleaning up some of the recent HSW code.
