Seems like a few issues going on here. In all case the command run is:
perf stat -g -- find / >/dev/null

v3.1 kernel, v3.1 perf command -- command runs fine and generates output.

v3.2 kernel, v3.2 perf command -- fails - no output and nothing in dmesg.

Using latest acme/core version of perf generates a WARNING on all
versions tried - v3.1, v3.2, v3.4-rc3, and v3.4-rc7:
