    No, the attr.pmu_id would reflect the location in the tree (pci
    location, or spu number), the pmu id reported would identify the kind of
    pmu driver used for that particular device.

    I realized this confusion after sending but didn't clarify, we should
    come up with a good alternative name for either (or both) uses.
