yes. there should be separate mode for 're: audit discussion' where
only bpf events are collected. This patch set doesn't add that to
perf user space side.
The kernel side is common though. It can be used for bpf load/unload
only and for different use case in this set. Which is making
bpf program appear in normal 'perf report'.
Please see link in cover letter.
We decided to abandon my old approach in favor of this one,
but the end result is the same.
From 0.81% cpu of some magic 0x00007fffa001a660
into 18.13% of bpf_prog_1accc788e7f04c38_balancer_ingres
