That's the one I was referring to.

I see now -- different problem, but similar in that it's an mmap event
and the pid is 0.

I need to take my daughter to school and won't get back to this for a
while but what I am seeing is that on perf-record mmap events are
generated with pid set to DEFAULT_GUEST_KERNEL_ID = 0
(machines__create_guest_kernel_maps).

On the report side a machine has not been created for pid of 0, so the
look up in perf_session__find_machine_for_cpumode fails.
