Here is v2 of the patch series.
v2 only touches the x86 code, let me first gather comments if this is the
right direction to go...
And then touch other arches.

[PATCH 01/11] perf: un-const struct pmu *
[PATCH 02/11] perf: core, add pmu register and lookup functions
[PATCH 03/11] perf: x86, implement pmu->init_event
[PATCH 04/11] perf: core, use new api to lookup pmu and init event
[PATCH 05/11] perf: x86, remove hw_perf_event_init
[PATCH 06/11] perf: core, export pmus via sysfs
[PATCH 07/11] perf: x86, implements pmu::register_events
[PATCH 08/11] sysfs: introduce new interface sysfs_get_kobject
[PATCH 09/11] perf: multiplex perf_event_attr::type field
[PATCH 10/11] perf: core, lookup pmu via sysfs
[PATCH 11/11] perf top: demo of how to use the sysfs interface

Thanks for any comments.
