Hi Peter,

	bpf_perf_event_open() already returns a value, but if
perf_event_output's output_begin (mostly perf_output_begin) fails,
the only way to know about that is looking before/after the rb->lost,
right?

	For ring buffer users that is ok, we'll get a PERF_RECORD_LOST,
etc, but for BPF programs it would be convenient to get that -ENOSPC and
do some fallback, whatever makes sense, like in my augmented_syscalls
stuff for 'perf trace', i.e. don't augment it (i.e. push stuff at the
end of the normal payload), just don't filter the
raw_syscalls:sys_enter, 'perf trace' will get the enter syscall enter
event without the pointer dereference at the end, etc, warn the user but
don't lose a syscall in the strace-like output.	

	What do you think? Am I missing something? Probably ;-)

	Ah, its just test built.

- Arnaldo
