The kernel now supports SW based branch filters for book3s systems with
some specific requirements while dealing with HW supported branch filters
in order to achieve overall OR semantics prevailing in perf branch stack
sampling framework. This patch adapts the BHRB branch filter configuration
to meet those protocols. POWER8 PMU can only handle one HW based branch
filter request at any point of time. For all other combinations PMU will
pass it on to the SW.
