That did the trick, I'll update the documentation and include in my
"Committer testing" section:

[perf@five ~]$ groups
perf perf_users
[perf@five ~]$ ls -lahF bin/perf
-rwxr-x---. 1 root perf_users 24M Apr 7 10:34 bin/perf*
[perf@five ~]$ getcap bin/perf
bin/perf = cap_ipc_lock,cap_sys_ptrace,cap_syslog,38+ep
[perf@five ~]$
[perf@five ~]$ perf top --stdio

There is still something strange in here, the event is cycles:u (see at
the PerfTop line, but it is getting kernel samples :-\
