    Just wondering what detail causes that failure - the whole point
    of --uid mingo would be to enable nonprivileged users to do
    'session wide' profiling, *especially* if paranoia is high.

    So what does --uid do which perf record --pid 1234 wouldnt
    already do? By all means --uid ought to be a fancy way of doing
    a whole bunch of perf record --pid 1234 profiling sessions, at
    once.

    [ Btw, we should probably alias --user to --uid as well, as that
    might be the intuitive thing people would typically use? ]

    Anyway, pulled, thanks a lot Arnaldo!

    One detail: don't we want some of these fixes cherry-picked into
    perf/urgent as well?

    Thanks,

    Ingo
