After a little bit of digging around I understand that manpages have
to be written _after_ the new ioctl call has been added - at least
that's what I deduce when looking at what Vince Weaver did for the BPF
support:

commit b0f7b411bed0505937f0f51d6499d0c6c56f4b8c
Author: Vince Weaver <vincent.weaver@maine.edu>
Date: Thu Jul 23 13:10:21 2015 -0400

perf_event_open.2: 4.1 PERF_EVENT_IOC_SET_BPF support

This manpage patch relates to the addition of the
PERF_EVENT_IOC_SET_BPF ioctl in the following commit:

commit 2541517c32be2531e0da59dfd7efc1ce844644f5
Author: Alexei Starovoitov <ast@plumgrid.com>

Am I correct here or you want to proceed differently?

Thanks for the guidance,
Mathieu
