Let me use this example again.

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,

Yes, once for_each_group_member breaks (due to the issue in 'pos->leader = pos'),
evlist__for_each_entry will continue to the second unc_cbo_cache_lookup.any_i. But now evsel->leader
!= evsel (evsel->leader is "cycles"), so it will go to cpu_maps_matched.

But actually we don't need to go to cpu_maps_matched again.

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

If we solve the issue in above code, for_each_group_member doesn't break, the leaders of all members
in this group will be set to themselves.

if (evsel->leader == evsel)
continue;

So the iteration will continue to the next evsel.

Thanks
Jin Yao
