SubjectIssue of metrics for multiple uncore PMUs (was Re: [RFC PATCH v2 23/23] perf metricgroup: remove duped metric group events)

Hi Ian,

I was wondering if you ever tested commit 2440689d62e9 ("perf
metricgroup: Remove duped metric group events") for when we have a
metric which aliases multiple instances of the same uncore PMU in the
system?

I have been rebasing some of my arm64 perf work to v5.9-rc7, and find an
issue where find_evsel_group() fails for the uncore metrics under the
condition mentioned above.

Unfortunately I don't have an x86 machine to which this test applies.
However, as an experiment, I added a test metric to my broadwell JSON:

diff --git a/tools/perf/pmu-events/arch/x86/broadwell/bdw-metrics.json
b/tools/perf/pmu-events/arch/x86/broadwell/bdw-metrics.json

}
]

And get this:

Any idea what is going wrong here, before I have to dive in? The issue
seems to be this named commit.

Thanks,
John
