SubjectRe: [tip:perf/urgent] perf, x86: Catch spurious interrupts after disabling counters
From
Robert,

There is something else bothering me with cpuc->running.

It is not reset outside of the interrupt handler. So what if
event scheduling shuffles things around and an event is
moved somewhere else. Don't you need to clear the
cpuc->running[idx] for the old counter index?
