OK. I got it.

I found a bug in the test. If I specify cpu_list(use -a or -C) when logging spe data, some events with "pid:0 tid:0" is logged. This is obviously wrong.

I want to solve this problem, but I haven't found out what went wrong.

[root@server121 perf]# perf record -e arm_spe_0/branch_filter=1,ts_enable=1,pa_enable=1,load_filter=1,jitter=0,store_filter=1,min_latency=0/ -a
[ perf record: Woken up 1 times to write data ]
[ perf record: Captured and wrote 7.925 MB perf.data ]
[root@server121 perf]# perf report -D > spe_dump.out
[root@server121 perf]# vim spe_dump.out
