I wouldn't say "without any reason" as there was a reason.

But I'm not pleased with the way this all works still.

# echo 'prev_pid == 100' > /debug/tracing/events/sched/filter
# cat /debug/tracing/events/sched/filter
prev_pid == 100

# cat /debug/tracing/events/sched/sched_migrate_task/filter

# echo 'orig_cpu == 1' > /debug/tracing/events/sched/sched_migrate_task/filter
# cat /debug/tracing/events/sched/sched_migrate_task/filter
orig_cpu == 1

# cat /debug/tracing/events/sched/filter
prev_pid == 100

The above shows how things are just ambiguous. I have no problem in
using the top filter to set multiple events. But the top filter should
not keep the state of what was set. Perhaps just have system event
filters always show default text. Like:

# cat /debug/tracing/events/sched/filter
### global filter ###
# Use this to set multiple event filters
# Only affects events that have the event fields specified in the filter

I'll add your patch, but are you OK with the above always printing for
system event filters? Just to remove the ambiguous state.
