The patch is ok, but I think the naming of this function is too generic,
so I'm renaming it to:

static int perf_evsel__open_adjust_precise_ip(struct perf_evsel *evsel,
pid_t pid, int cpu, int group_fd,
unsigned long flags)

Ok?

The perf_evsel__open() code is already complex with that fallback
mechanism, this is just one more way of fallbacking when asking the
kernel for something that may fail.

In fact what happens if the precise_ip that is being asked _is_
supported but sys_perf_event_open() fails because some other
perf_event_attr attribute that is set is not supported?

I see, it gets it back restored to what the user asked so that the
standard fallback is tried, ok, I'll apply with just the rename for this
function,

Thanks,
