hi,
could we have the interface with string only:
config = perf_pmu__alias(pmu, alias);

and AFAICS check if there's only single term and it's string,
then check for alias


I've got an idea for another approach, that would not need reentrant
parser and might be more gentle to the sysfs file rule

- in sysfs you would have directory with aliases (now called 'events')
- each alias is sysfs dir, with file attrs:
file name = term name, file value = term value
eg.:
events/
CAS_COUNT_RD/
# files:
config - value 1
config1 - value 2
mask - value ...

- on init you read all aliases and load its terms
so each alias is defined by list of terms
- in parse_events_add_pmu before you run perf_pmu__config,
you check if any term matches any defined alias
and replace that term with all the terms defined for the alias
- run perf_pmu__config with new set of terms..

this way it's also possible to add extra terms to existing alias
in command line if needed... might be handy

thoughts?
