Yes but it would be nice to have a single function to do it that knows
the rules for when the evsel->cpus should be retained. Say:
int __perf_evlist__propagate_maps(struct perf_evlist *evlist, struct perf_evsel *evsel)
then call it from perf_evlist__propagate_maps(), perf_evlist__add() and
perf_evlist__splice_list_tail(). Probably need to add a member to perf_evlist
to know when the evlist->cpus should replace the evsel->cpus
