So, with these patches, but not the kernel ones I end up getting:

[root@quaco ~]# perf record -c 10000 -e cycles/aux-output/ppp -e intel_pt/branch=0/ uname
Error:
The sys_perf_event_open() syscall returned with 22 (Invalid argument)
for event (cycles/aux-output/ppp).
/bin/dmesg | grep -i perf may provide additional information.

[root@quaco ~]#

I'll check if I can make it spew a more helpful message, then build a
kernel with the kernel patches and try with it as well.

PeterZ has the kernel ones landed on tip? I guess not, as perf/core I
have should be in sync...
