I tested with the lastest perf/core branch which contains the patch:
'perf augmented_raw_syscalls: Tell which args are filenames and how
many bytes to copy' and got the error as below:

# perf trace -e string -e /mnt/linux-kernel/linux-cs-dev/tools/perf/examples/bpf/augmented_raw_syscalls.c
Error: Invalid syscall access, chmod, chown, creat, futimesat, lchown, link, lstat, mkdir, mknod, newfstatat, open, readlink, rename,
rmdir, stat, statfs, symlink, truncate, unlink
Hint: try 'perf list syscalls:sys_enter_*'
Hint: and: 'man syscalls'

So seems mksyscalltbl has not included completely for syscalls, I
use below command to generate syscalltbl_arm64[] array and it don't
include related entries for access, chmod, chown, etc ...

You could refer the generated syscalltbl_arm64 in:

Cool! Please feel free let me know if need me to do testing for this.

Thanks,
