I understand the need of the dummy event. But we already have dummy
event so it's confusing to have similar event IMHO. So what about
using existing dummy event instead? You can save a link to a bpf
object in the dummy evsel (to check it later) and change to allow
setting filter on dummy events IMHO.

IMHO it'd be better to do this kind of job in a single place -
e.g. perf_evlist__config() ? - so that other commands get benefits
from it easily.
