hwpmc: Always set pmc_cpuid to something

Authored by freqlabs on Jul 14 2020, 9:02 PM.



pmc_cpuid was uninitialized for most AMD processor families. We still can populate this string for unimplemented families.

Also removed an extra call to sysctlbyname in libpmc, added a CPUID_TO_STEPPING macro, and converted existing code to use it. I can commit these changes separately, if preferable.

Ah this can be removed and NULL passed to sysctlbyname instead, too.

No it should be initialized to the size of the buffer instead.

This should probably be a strlcpy while I'm making changes here.

Looks good to me.

Generally it is not recommended to mix unrelated changes, but too small granularity create too much noise and also is not great, so best is somewhere in the middle. In this case libpmc part looks unrelated and could be committed separately.

Yes, would not harm, considering it is passed as an argument to the library function,
