Vince, could you please disable alias events and see if it change
anything, once you have time? Note once we've aliases disabled the
counter for cpu cycles get used for NMI watchdog so PERF_COUNT_HW_CPU_CYCLES
won't be available in "perf" tool itself, but I guess perf_fuzzer uses
direct kernel syscall.
