I agree that perf profiling works best on Intel. The AMD perf side
works ok in Zen 2 from what I've seen, but needs to be a full-system
profile ("perf record -a") to use the better options, and ARM is..

But with x86 ranging from "excellent" to "usable", and ARM hopefully
being at least close to getting better proper profile data, I really
think it's the way forward, with instrumentation being a band-aid at
best.
