I'm okay if you change the wording of the existing message to be
clearer. I'm also okay if you add this extra information if you find
this useful.

In that case, also have a look at the data generated by perf record -s,
this dumps a PERF_RECORD_READ of the actual counter value at the exit of
every task [doesn't work with per-cpu counters].
