Something else is wrong then. I tested that command (saw your patch in

affect perf-stat -- it touches perf-record and perf-test only.

Ah, right. But still wouldn't it be better changing the conditional
rather than disabling it unconditionally?


I think it would be best to disable all events initially and then enable them when ready. It works for perf-record and perf-test just fine and limits the samples to what you care about.
