Right, that should be supported, yes. What I meant was that when
processing perf.data file with samples where the cpumode can't be
inferred, we should use the fallback routines.

It is super unfortunate that we have addresses without a accompanying
cpumode :-\ Don't you think those coulde be fixed somehow? If this comes
from things synthesized from Intel PT traces, then we can use the
address ranges for kernel/userspace to derive that before hitting the
core code, that would be fed with addr/cpumode pairs, just like we have
hdr.misc & USER/KERNEL and the PERF_CONTEXT_ markers in callchains.
