Subject[PATCH v2 1/2] perf evlist: Keep topdown counters in weak group
From
On Intel Icelake, topdown events must always be grouped with a slots
event as leader. When a metric is parsed a weak group is formed and
retried if perf_event_open fails. The retried events aren't grouped
breaking the slots leader requirement. This change modifies the weak
group "reset" behavior so that topdown events aren't broken from the
group for the retry.

$ perf stat -e '{slots,topdown-bad-spec,topdown-be-bound,topdown-fe-bound,topdown-retiring,branch-instructions,branch-misses,bus-cycles,cache-misses,cache-references,cpu-cycles,instructions,mem-loads,mem-stores,ref-cycles,baclears.any,ARITH.DIVIDER_ACTIVE}:W' -a sleep 1
