    Do you mean the explicit PEBS disable?
    That's only for one model, but it did not address the underlying
    problem that Linux did non architecturally guaranteed things
    just based on ArchPerfmon.

    The PEBS disable still is needed even with my patch of course.

    Do you want it enabled per model? I can turn the flag around.
    Anything else?
