Well, this is really a hardware limitation. User cannot monitor more events on a 
package than # of RMIDs at the *same time*. The 10/14 reuses the RMIDs that are 
not monitored anymore. User can monitor more events once he stops monitoring 
some..

So we throw error at the read (LAZY mode) or open(NOLAZY mode) ..
