The MIPS32 spec to which the Au1x00 complies defines the structure and
interface of performance counters.  It does not define which events
the counters count.  Some non-MIPS32/64 processors also have slightly
different performance counter implementations.  The R10000 and R12000
performance counters values are pretty similar.
