I just pushed the latest updates to https://github.com/yaoj/perf.git. Sorry it's getting late.

Actually it's Arnaldo's tmp.perf/core branch. Arnaldo has applied the patch series on tmp.perf/core
and with an update on "[PATCH v6 01/26] tools headers uapi: Update tools's copy of
linux/perf_event.h".

If there are more comments which need to be addressed, we will start from tmp.perf/core for v7.

Thanks
Jin Yao
