Subject: [RFC 0/3] perf tests: Adding precise event attribute test

hi,
as per issues with precise attribute [1], adding simple test to
catch it next time. 

Patch 2 adds sysfs 'precise' attribute containing maximum value
for perf_event_attr::precise_ip.

Patch 3 adds simple test checking the attribute and creating cycle
events with all possible precise values.

I based this on revert (Patch 1) discussed in [1]. I'm not sure
this revert will tak place at the end, but I wanted to get some
feedback on the 'precise' attribute first.

Attached patches:
  1/3 Revert "perf: Require exclude_guest to use PEBS - kernel side enforcement"
  2/3 perf x86: Add precise sysfs attribute
  3/3 perf tests: Add precise event attribute test

thanks,
jirka
