P4 events thread specific is a bit more messy in compare with
architectural events. There are thread specific (TS) and thread
independent (TI) events. The exact effect of mixing flags from
what we call "ANY" bit is described in two matrix in SDM.

So to make code simplier I chose to just bind events to a
particular logical cpu, when event migrate to say a second cpu
the bits just flipped in accordance on which cpu the event is
going to run. Pretty simple. Even more -- if there was some
RAW event which have set "ANY" bit -- they all will be just stripped
and event get bound to a single cpu.

I'll try to find out an easy way to satisfy this "ANY" bit request
though it would require some time (perhaps today later or rather
tomorrow).
