> intel-gpu-top is a dangerous tool which can hang machines due unsafe mmio
> register access. This patch rewrites it to use only PMU.
> Only overall command streamer busyness and GPU global data such as power
> and frequencies are included in this new version.
> For access to more GPU functional unit level data, an OA metric based tool
> like gpu-top should be used instead.

them towards "perf record" now.
