On this one, I think there may be a problem with events with
shared_regs constraints.
Constraint is dynamic as it depends on other events which share the
same MSR, yet it
is not marked as DYNAMIC. But this may be okay because these other
events are all
on the same CPU and thus scheduled during the same ctx_sched_in(). Yet with the
swapping in intel_alt_er(), we need to double-check that we cannot
reuse a constraint
which could be stale. I believe this is okay, just double-check.
