Bingo!

[root@jouet ~]# perf record -e "{cycles,page-faults,branch-misses}" usleep 1
[ perf record: Woken up 1 times to write data ]
[ perf record: Captured and wrote 0.020 MB perf.data (20 samples) ]
[root@jouet ~]# perf annotate -l --stdio 2>&1 | grep -w nan | head
100.00 -nan 100.00 msr.h:104
0.00 -nan 0.00 : ffffffff81060bf0: mov %edi,%ecx
0.00 -nan 0.00 : ffffffff81060bf2: mov %esi,%eax
0.00 -nan 0.00 : ffffffff81060bf4: wrmsr
msr.h:104 100.00 -nan 100.00 : ffffffff81060bf6: nopl 0x0(%rax,%rax,1)
0.00 -nan 0.00 : ffffffff81060bfb: retq
0.00 -nan 0.00 : ffffffff81060bfc: push %rbp
0.00 -nan 0.00 : ffffffff81060bfd: mov %esi,%eax
0.00 -nan 0.00 : ffffffff81060bff: mov %rdx,%rsi
0.00 -nan 0.00 : ffffffff81060c02: shl $0x20,%rsi
[root@jouet ~]#

So, if we don't use -l/--print-line we get:

[root@jouet ~]# perf annotate --stdio --no-source native_write_msr
Percent | Source code & Disassembly of vmlinux for cycles (3 samples)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

0.00 0.00 0.00 : ffffffff81060c16: retq
[root@jouet ~]#

I.e. one column per event in that group, and no -nan, all is well.

But if we ask for --lines it gets b0rked:

[root@jouet ~]# perf annotate --stdio --no-source native_write_msr --print-line

I don't have that much time to continue pursuing this, try to continue
investigating, I'll try to help and to fix this later.
