Ok, I have them at my perf/env branch:

https://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/acme/linux.git/commit/?h=perf/env

12 eefb0dbb1aa9 perf evsel: Remove forward declaration of 'struct perf_evlist'
11 8d9c09de8465 Revert "perf evsel: Add a backpointer to the evlist a evsel is in"
10 e3611f9dbced perf report: Do not blindly use env->cpu[al.cpu].socket_id
9 6f9ad1cd48e8 perf event: Use machine->env to find the cpu -> socket mapping
8 7b157d3eb7b4 perf machine: Add pointer to sample's environment
7 cc393318b0c0 perf hists browser: Fixup the "cpu" column width calculation
6 bc413472a275 perf top: Cache the cpu topology info when "-s socket" is used
5 908f1939ad52 perf sort: Set flag stating if the "socket" key is being used
4 81956a8be745 perf env: Introduce read_cpu_topology_map() method
3 7d76ec2a6f18 perf env: Adopt perf_header__set_cmdline
2 371495478108 perf env: Rename some leftovers from rename to perf_env
1 7b1a26d8cff7 perf env: Move perf_env out of header.h and session.c into separate object

Now I see that one more probably is needed, the one adding the ->env
backpointer to struct evlist.

The ones fixing the problem are #9 and #10, the rest is infrastructure needed
for those fixes to work, and some are not strictly needed but as I was working
on it, couldn't resist cleaning up.

I'll test this some more, add one or more cleanups and post for review, if all
goes well, tomorrow I'll push it to Ingo.

- Arnaldo
