Thanks for looking at this! I sent a new version (v7):
https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20200407064018.158555-1-irogers@google.com/T/#u
that adds Stephane's improvements for handling fallback when
perf_event_open fails. Please let us know if there are issues we can
address with the patch set.

Thanks,
Ian
