Oops, that got cut short early, because I started looking up when PEBS
and the last-branch-buffer work together, and couldn't find it, and
then came back to the email and forgot to finish the sentence.

Anyway: sometimes you get call chains with precise events, sometimes
you don't. And it turns out that I can't find out which cores do both,
and which ones don't.
