Subject[PATCH 2/3] perf tools: Emit clearer message for sys_perf_event_open ENOENT return
Date
From: David Ahern <daahern@cisco.com>

Resend of patch sent back in January 2011 in light of recent confusion around
unsupported events for a given platform.

Improve sys_perf_event_open ENOENT return handling in top and record, just
like 5a3446b does for stat.

Retry of Arnaldo's patch using ui_warning instead of die which allows the
fallback from hardware cycles to software clock.
