Yeah about that, I was recently speculating how that would work. So do we do

$ perf record ...

in the one xterm, and, in the other,

$ perf inject

so that while recording, we can inject some events from userspace? Or
do we inject it, it gets buffered somewhere in the meantime and then
the next perf record session sees it along with the remaining injection

The ras inject part would obviously only use the callback and the
injection will happen immediately.
