Subject[PATCH 4.9 119/172] perf/x86: Reject non sampling events with precise_ip
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Jiri Olsa <jolsa@redhat.com>


[ Upstream commit 18e7a45af91acdde99d3aa1372cc40e1f8142f7b ]

As Peter suggested [1] rejecting non sampling PEBS events,
because they dont make any sense and could cause bugs
in the NMI handler [2].
