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
