Sorry I meant flags as an alias of "the 64bits currently occupied by the
bitfield". Perhaps the name choice was not very good.

"flags_bitfield" ?

So the tool would only need to know that, not every bit.

In theory it could be also generalized as a byte offset to perf_event,
but that may be overengineered.
