Yes, these changes are made in the KVM context, and
they are all necessary to emulate basic PEBS hw behavior.

Let me add more KVM context here,

we would create a perf_event for a normal non-PEBS counter
and we reuse the same perf_event from time to time as much as possible
instead of "create + destroy" new perf_event.

So when a normal counter is configured for PEBS,
the original perf_event would not be reused and
a new PEBS perf_event is created, vice verse.

I absolutely agree that cross-domain development
may make maintainers' eyes uncomfortable.

My on-demand explanation is always online
if you fire more questions on this patch set.
