SubjectRe: [PATCH 5/5] perf: arm_spe: Decode SVE events

(8192, in fact, though don't expect to see that on real hardware any
time soon... qemu and the Arm fast model can do it, though.)

I don't know anything about SPE, so just commenting on a few minor
things that catch my eye here.

(Nit: can ret be < 0 ? I've never been 100% clear on this myself for
the s*printf() family -- if this assumption is widespread in perf tool
a lready that I guess just go with the flow.)

I wonder if this snprintf+increment+decrement sequence could be wrapped
up as a helper, rather than having to be repeated all over the place.

Isn't this just extracting 3 bits (0x7)? And what unit are we aiming
for here: is it the number of bytes per vector, or something else? I'm
confused by the fact that this will go up in steps of 32, which doesn't
seem to match up to the architecure.

I notice that bit 7 has to be zero to get into this if() though.

Same comment as above. Maybe have a common helper for decoding the
vector length bits so it can be fixed in a single place?
