Yes, it should a bug for large PEBS, and it should has always been there
since the large PEBS was introduced. I just tried some older kernels
(before recent change). Large PEBS is not flushed with per-cpu events.

But from your description, it looks like the issue is only found after
recent change. Could you please double check if the issue can also be
reproduced before the recent change?

I think sched_task is a too big hammer. The
__perf_event_task_sched_in/out will be invoked even for non-pebs per-cpu
events, which is not necessary.

Maybe we can introduce a flag to indicate the case. How about the patch
as below?
