[PATCH v7 00/13] selftests/resctrl: Add resctrl selftest

With more and more resctrl features are being added by Intel, AMD
and ARM, a test tool is becoming more and more useful to validate
that both hardware and software functionalities work as expected.

We introduce resctrl selftest to cover resctrl features on both
X86 and ARM architectures. It first implements MBM (Memory Bandwidth
Monitoring), MBA (Memory Bandwidth Allocation), L3 CAT (Cache Allocation
Technology), and CQM (Cache QoS Monitoring)  tests. We can enhance
the selftest tool to include more functionality tests in future.

The tool has been tested on both Intel RDT and AMD QoS.

There is an existing resctrl test suite 'intel_cmt_cat'. But the major
purpose of the tool is to test Intel(R) RDT hardware via writing and
reading MSR registers. It does access resctrl file system; but the
functionalities are very limited. And it doesn't support automatic test
and a lot of manual verifications are involved.

So the selftest tool we are introducing here provides a convenient
tool which does automatic resctrl testing, is easily available in kernel
tree, and will be extended to AMD QoS and ARM MPAM.

The selftest tool is in tools/testing/selftests/resctrl in order to have
generic test code for all architectures.

- Fix a few warnings when compiling patches separately, pointed by Babu 

- Fix a benchmark reading optimized out issue in newer GCC.
- Fix a few coding style issues.
- Re-arrange code among patches to make cleaner code. No change in patches

- Based the v4 patches submitted by Fenghua Yu and added changes to support
- Changed the function name get_sock_num to get_resource_id. Intel uses
  socket number for schemata and AMD uses l3 index id. To generalize,
  changed the function name to get_resource_id.
- Added the code to detect vendor.
- Disabled the few tests for AMD where the test results are not clear.
  Also AMD does not have IMC.
- Fixed few compile issues.
- Some cleanup to make each patch independent.
- Tested the patches on AMD system. Fenghua, Need your help to test on
  Intel box. Please feel free to change and resubmit if something
- Here is the link for previous version.

- address comments from Balu and Randy
- Add CAT and CQM tests

- Change code based on comments from Babu Moger
- Remove some unnessary code and use pipe to communicate b/w processes

- Change code based on comments from Babu Moger
- Clean up other places.
