I will sit in userspace looping over bpf load/unload and see how the
person trying to monitor something else with perf feels about that.

Really, it is inappropriate to turn this on by default, I completely
agree with David Ahern.

It's hard enough, _AS IS_, for me to fight back all of the bloat that
is in perf right now and get it back to being able to handle simple
full workloads without dropping events..

Every new event type like this sets us back.

If people want to monitor new things, or have new functionality, fine.

But not by default, please.
