can't get around this.. I understand the need, but AFAICS you allocate
the whole 'struct perf_event', just because there's count field in it
otherwise the 'struct hw_perf_event' should be enough to carry all that's
needed to read hw event

would it be better to move the count to 'struct hw_perf_event' and use
that instead? assuming I'm not missing anything..
