Hi Peter,

Do you have an idea how to resolve this?

For context, I maintain a Go library that interacts with perf_events
for the purpose of attaching eBPF kprobes. Users keep asking for an
explicit tracefs fallback since the miss counter is so valuable to
them. It'd be great to find a solution!

Best
Lorenz
