No worries!

Thanks for confirmation.

You could see Wei's patch set has 4 patches [1]. I only picked the
patch 02 [2] from Wei's patch set into my refactoring patch set; the
patch 01 is for enabling driver for SVE events, the patches 03/04
introduced new synthesized events.

Patches 03 / 04 should be considered carefully and it's good to prove
these synthesized events will be useful for user cases before upstream
them. The reason is AFAIK a good direction to generate SPE trace data
for memory events [3], and for SVE, I think we should firstly consider
if can reuse the memory event for profiling rather than adding new
synthesized events.

So I prefer to give priority for patches 01 / 02.

For saving time, let me respin patch set v2 and send to LKML (hope in
next 1~2 days). Then you could review patch set v2.
