Yeah, otherwise we'd have to play a bit more tricky games with
--switch-output parsing, to support something like:

--switch-output=event(event_desc_str)

and pass that event_desc_str to parse_events_option_new_evlist(), do you
think that sounds better?

Well, the rec->thread_id = pthread_self(); part is just for reusing a
'perf record' specific mechanism, what to do when the event appears in
the side band thread ring buffer, the evlist__set_cb() also is related
to that, moving thread_id to evlist seems too much at this time.

If rec->sb_evlist is NULL, then there was no --switch-output-event
passed... The only advantage in adding the complexity below would be if
we had rec->switch_output_event_set which would clarify that sb_evlist
is not used only for --switch-output-event, to make things clearer.

And this still leaves us with the jump, otherwise we would have to test
it twice, right?

I think I'll separate the patch adding OPT_CALLBACK_SET(), then fold the
switch_output_event_set addition to builtin-record, ok?
