Same.

I think the magic calculation in this patch may differ from upstream
llvm: https://github.com/llvm/llvm-project/blob/49142991a685bd427d7e877c29c77371dfb7634c/llvm/include/llvm/ProfileData/SampleProf.h#L96-L101

vs this patch:

+ * Note: These internal LLVM definitions must match the compiler version.
+ * See llvm/include/llvm/ProfileData/InstrProfData.inc in LLVM's source code.
+ */
