ok, so how about this, it's the change I posted merged with the patch

Currently we probe for precise_ip with user specified
perf_event_attr, which might fail because of unsupported
kernel features, which would get disabled during the
open time anyway.

Switching the probe to take place on simple event,
only configured with users type/config, so the
following record sets proper precise_ip:

  # perf record -e cycles:P ls
  # perf evlist -v
  cycles:P: size: 112, ... precise_ip: 3, ...
