Yeah, I will post separate patches for this.

Many thanks.

With Lin's patch 'perf: Remove perf_event_attr::type check' we already
can sample with perf record.

I think we could extend perf report to parse also ibs samples. The
only thing we need for it should be the pmu name/type mapping in the
perf.data header and the pmu type in the sample. See my comment on
Stephane's patch '[PATCH] perf: make perf.data more self-descriptive
(v5)'.

Thanks,

-Robert
