I wanted to, but I thought we could avoid two indirect calls on each
ticks and I was also afraid of breaking start/stop original semantics,
more especially the role of perf_event_stop/start


But that's about quite small details. I'm ok with your patch (the version
that also handles trace events ;)

Thanks.
