[PATCH] Move handling of the MIDR Variant and Revision bits into the mapfile.csv file




The arm64 code indentification code was filtering out the Variant and
Revision bits when it initially read the MIDR value.  It is better to
do the filtering of Variant and Revision bits in the regular
expressions in the mapsfile.csv.  If some performance events do not
function for particular versions of silicon, special case maps can be
added to mapsfile.csv before the general case to handle them.
