The =? is not a user input, so I did not think of validating that.

perf tool expects kernel/sysfs to show entries like 'core=?'. Are you
saying that we should error out if kernel mistakenly displays 'core=$val'
or 'core=?val' ?

If a required parameter is missing, we catch that in pmu_resolve_param_term().
If a bogus parameter is specified we catch that above in pmu_config_term().
