Issue is found!

It looks we can't set "pos->leader = pos" in either for_each_group_member() or in
for_each_group_evsel() because it may exit the iteration immediately.

evlist__for_each_entry(evlist, evsel) {
if (evsel->leader == evsel)
continue;

if (cpu_maps_matched(evsel->leader, evsel))
continue;

pr_warning("WARNING: event cpu maps are not fully matched, "
"disable group\n");

for_each_group_member(pos, evsel->leader) {
pos->leader = pos;
pos->core.nr_members = 0;
}

Let me use the example of '{cycles,unc_cbo_cache_lookup.any_i}' again.

In evlist:
cycles,
unc_cbo_cache_lookup.any_i,
unc_cbo_cache_lookup.any_i,
unc_cbo_cache_lookup.any_i,
unc_cbo_cache_lookup.any_i,

When we reach the for_each_group_member at first time, evsel is the first unc_cbo_cache_lookup.any_i
and evsel->leader is cycles. pos is same as the evsel (the first unc_cbo_cache_lookup.any_i).

Once we execute "pos->leader = pos;", it's actually "evsel->leader = evsel". So now evsel->leader is
changed to the first unc_cbo_cache_lookup.any_i.

In next iteration, pos is the second unc_cbo_cache_lookup.any_i. pos->leader is cycles but
unfortunately evsel->leader has been changed to the first unc_cbo_cache_lookup.any_i. So iteration
stops immediately.

I'm now thinking if we can solve this issue by an easy way.

Thanks
Jin Yao
