Oh well , something must be broken...

"perf top" is working here, but if I use any "-e ...." argument, it
fails :
# perf top -e cache-misses

Error: sys_perf_event_open() syscall returned with 2 (No such file or directory).
/bin/dmesg may provide additional information.

Fatal: No CONFIG_PERF_EVENTS=y kernel support configured?

# grep PERF_EVENTS .config
CONFIG_HAVE_PERF_EVENTS=y
CONFIG_PERF_EVENTS=y
CONFIG_HAVE_PERF_EVENTS_NMI=y

Nothing in dmesg...
