I believe they are superfluous and break even before the flex change.
I commented on it here with a reproduction of a parse events error on
skylake:
https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/CAP-5=fUnWAycQehCJ9=btquV2c3DVDX+tTEc85H8py9Kfehq4w@mail.gmail.com/

Fixing the script that generates this would be great! With the test
landed it should be much harder for this to be broken in the future.
