How about this fix?

void evlist__check_cpu_maps(struct evlist *evlist)
{
struct evsel *evsel, *pos, *tmp;

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) {
if (pos != evsel) {
pos->leader = pos;
pos->core.nr_members = 0;
}
}

tmp = evsel->leader;
tmp->leader = tmp;
tmp->core.nr_members = 0;

evsel->leader = evsel;
evsel->core.nr_members = 0;
}
}

Thanks
