Subject[PATCH 03/15] perf stat: Use group read for event groups
Date
From: Jiri Olsa <jolsa@kernel.org>

Make perf stat use group read if there are groups defined. The group
read will get the values for all member of groups within a single
syscall instead of calling read syscall for every event.

We can see considerable less amount of kernel cycles spent on single
group read, than reading each event separately, like for following perf
stat command:

# perf stat -e {cycles,instructions} -I 10 -a sleep 1

Monitored with "perf stat -r 5 -e '{cycles:u,cycles:k}'"

Before:

24,325,676 cycles:u
297,040,775 cycles:k

1.038554134 seconds time elapsed

After:
25,034,418 cycles:u
158,256,395 cycles:k

1.036864497 seconds time elapsed

The perf_evsel__open fallback changes contributed by Andi Kleen.
