So why do you need perf_pmu_*able wrappers now that you brings stubs
if none is provided?

Actually, one problem is that it makes calling two indirect nops
for software events.

Should the txn things really map to the enable/disable ops is the
off-case? Probably better let pmu implementations deal with that.
If they didn't provide txn implementations, it means they don't need it,
hence it should directly map to a nop.
