Oh thanks a lot, it seems to work now!

One strange thing I noticed: sometimes perf reports that there were some
accesses to target numa nodes 4-7 while my box only has 4 numa nodes:
If I request counters only for the non-existing target numa nodes (4-7,
with -e r1000010e0 -e r1000020e0 -e r1000040e0 -e r1000080e0), I always
get 4 zeros.
But if I mix some couinters from the existing nodes (0-3) with some
counters from non-existing nodes (4-7), the non-existing ones report
some small but non-empty values.
Does it ring any bell?
