    I pulled this into my current git tree just for testing.

    It's horribly broken, but it's not the annotation that is broken.

    The whole "-e cycles:pp" doesn't work any more. I don't get any nice
    PEBS information, I get the totally useless irq-based profiling.

    The difference for a "make -j" profile is quite stunning:

    Doing "perf record -f -e cycles:pp -F 20000 make -j"

    - my current git:

    [ perf record: Woken up 47 times to write data ]
    [ perf record: Captured and wrote 11.890 MB (~519462 samples) ]

    - with the above tree pulled into my current git tree (but compiling
    the same old tree):

    [ perf record: Woken up 1 times to write data ]
    [ perf record: Captured and wrote 0.031 MB (~1375 samples) ]

    and not suprisingly, the resulting profiles are crap due to lack of
    reasonable sample coverage.

    I don't think this has anything to do with your changes, but I thought
    I'd report it anyway. Something in 'perf' land is broken.
