I don't think it's necessary. This way, by default we get support for
other perf events. If user space observes si_perf==0, then there's no
information available. That would require that any event type that
sets si_perf in future, must ensure that it sets si_perf!=0.

I can add a comment to document the requirement here (and user space
facing documentation should get a copy of how the info is encoded,
too).

Alternatively, we could set si_errno to 0 if no info is available, at
the cost of losing the type information for events not explicitly
listed here.

What do you prefer?
