Apart from that I reproduced the problem and after applying your patch
it seems cured:

[acme@quaco perf]$ grep 'model name' -m1 /proc/cpuinfo
model name : Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-8650U CPU @ 1.90GHz

Before (with -v to see details):

[root@quaco ~]# perf stat -v -M DRAM_BW_Use -- sleep 1
Using CPUID GenuineIntel-6-8E-A
metric expr 64 * ( arb@event\=0x81\,umask\=0x1@ + arb@event\=0x84\,umask\=0x1@ ) / 1000000 / duration_time / 1000 for DRAM_BW_Use
found event duration_time
found event arb/event=0x84,umask=0x1/
found event arb/event=0x81,umask=0x1/
adding {arb/event=0x84,umask=0x1/,arb/event=0x81,umask=0x1/}:W,duration_time
Control descriptor is not initialized
Warning:
arb/event=0x84,umask=0x1/ event is not supported by the kernel.
Error:
The sys_perf_event_open() syscall returned with 22 (Invalid argument) for event (arb/event=0x84,umask=0x1/).
/bin/dmesg | grep -i perf may provide additional information.

[root@quaco ~]#

After:

[root@quaco ~]# perf stat -M DRAM_BW_Use -- sleep 1

Performance counter stats for 'system wide':

2,806 arb/event=0x84,umask=0x1/ # 0.63 DRAM_BW_Use
10,001,820 arb/event=0x81,umask=0x1/
1,016,875,686 ns duration_time

1.016875686 seconds time elapsed

[root@quaco ~]#

So I'm removing that fixes and adding this one, that I think is where
"duration_time" was being considered...

Fixes: e3ba76deef23064f ("perf tools: Force uncore events to system wide monitoring")

Also, wouldn't it be better to have the duration_time event with its
evsel->core.system_wide set to true?
