Hello Namhyung,

Actually, you are right. We aggregate counter values from different
events of a
single IIO stack (PCIe root port) to calculate metrics for this IO stack.
But the reason is to prevent using of '-e' and '-M' options in 'iostat' mode
because it can be a reason for the mess in the output that can confuse
users.

There is an idea to use your suggestion for this part:

status = iostat_prepare(...);
if (status < 0)
        goto out;
if (status == IOSTAT_LIST)
        iostat_list(...);
else
        ...

So, we can check if evlist is empty inside iostat_prepare(). If not, print
a warning, for example, "The -e and -M options are not supported. All chosen
events/metrics will be dropped". Then we can free of evlist by using
evlist__delete(), create new one by using evlist__new() and fill the evlist.

In this case the body of iostat_prepare() function would be:

iostat_prepare()
{
    If (!is_evlist_empty) {
        pr_warning();
        evlist__delete();
        evlist__new()
    }

    iostat_event_group();
}

It will allow to get rid of the AGGR_PCIE_PORT.
What do you think?

Thank you,
Alexander
