I so hate LTP, you can't compile the test cases in isolate and running
'make' doesn't work.

Its unfortunate the test doesn't actually tells what it was expecting.
It fails to print 'nhw'.

In any case, please try -rc6, which includes:

a096309bc467 perf: Fix scaling vs. perf_install_in_context()
bd2afa49d194 perf: Fix scaling vs. perf_event_enable()
7fce250915ef perf: Fix scaling vs. perf_event_enable_on_exec()
3cbaa5906967 perf: Fix ctx time tracking by introducing EVENT_TIME

Which might fix this. I gave up after a few minutes trying to make LTP
work.
