Unfortunately, currently there is no in-kernel user of pre-filtering.

I'll try to implement the pid-base filtering at least for
tracing/uprobe_events, but this needs a time. Not only I am not familiar
with this code, I am not sure how this interface should actually look.
And I agree, perf should be able to use it somehow, perhaps at least
to allow to probe a single task/mm.

Oleg.
