powerpc: Add timer, performance monitor and machine check counts to /proc/interrupts
With NO_HZ it is useful to know how often the decrementer is going off. The patch below adds an entry for it and also adds it into the /proc/stat summaries. While here, I added performance monitoring and machine check exceptions. I found it useful to keep an eye on the PMU exception rate when using the perf tool. Since it's possible to take a completely handled machine check on a System p box it also sounds like a good idea to keep a machine check summary. The event naming matches x86 to keep gratuitous differences to a minimum. Signed-off-by: Anton Blanchard <anton@samba.org> Signed-off-by: Benjamin Herrenschmidt <benh@kernel.crashing.org>
