Could you please add a description (in the header) describing why it's safe to
reuse this bit? i.e. describe which events these are valid for, so it's clear
they don't overlap.

For bit 13 we have:

/*
* Following PERF_RECORD_MISC_* are used on different
* events, so can reuse the same bit position:
*
* PERF_RECORD_MISC_MMAP_DATA - PERF_RECORD_MMAP* events
* PERF_RECORD_MISC_COMM_EXEC - PERF_RECORD_COMM event
* PERF_RECORD_MISC_SWITCH_OUT - PERF_RECORD_SWITCH* events
*/
#define PERF_RECORD_MISC_MMAP_DATA (1 << 13)
#define PERF_RECORD_MISC_COMM_EXEC (1 << 13)
#define PERF_RECORD_MISC_SWITCH_OUT (1 << 13)

Thanks,
Mark.
