Subject[PATCH 1/2 v2] perf stat: Rework x86 transaction counter handling
Date
Command 'perf stat -T -- sleep 2' displays transaction
counters. Right now there is only hard coded support
for x86.

This patch introduces architecture specific counter
tables for x86. The architecture is queried
and the event string for transaction counters is constructed
depending on the architecture and the CPU measurement
facility counter list. This scheme can be easily extended
to support other architectures.

Output does not change.
