[PATCH v7 1/5] perf: Allow a PMU to have a parent
Posted by Jonathan Cameron 1 year ago
Some PMUs have well defined parents such as PCI devices.
As the device_initialize() and device_add() are all within
pmu_dev_alloc() which is called from perf_pmu_register()
there is no opportunity to set the parent from within a driver.

Add a struct device *parent field to struct pmu and use that
to set the parent.
