I'm getting precise_ip=3 on mem-* events as well, that's why I
was fixing this.. now it's not working for any event

how about we use empty template with just type/config
of the original event, like in the change below,
that way we eliminate unsupported features failing
the probing.. maybe we could use oldest attr version

also if precise_ip is event based, we shouldn't use the
caps/max_precise then
