  ifndef NO_DWARF
    ifeq ($(origin PERF_HAVE_DWARF_REGS), undefined)
      msg := $(warning DWARF register mappings have not been defined for architecture $(SRCARCH), DWARF support disabled);

      EXTLIBS += ${DWARFLIBS}
      $(call detected,CONFIG_DWARF)
    endif # PERF_HAVE_DWARF_REGS
  endif # NO_DWARF

Ouch:

[acme@...e perf]$ cat tools/perf/arch/xtensa/Makefile
# SPDX-License-Identifier: GPL-2.0-only
ifndef NO_DWARF
PERF_HAVE_DWARF_REGS := 1
endif
[acme@...e perf]$

So you have a point, only if NO_DWARF is not defined, then
PERF_HAVE_DWARF_REGS is can be used to define HAVE_DWARF_SUPPORT, too
clumsy.

So probably my hunch that this should be done at
evsel__open_strerror() and use perf_missing_features.dwarf_regs is
what we should go...

I'm removing this patch from my current tree, please take a look at:

https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/acme/linux.git/commit/?h=tmp.perf/core&id=f55c66234c1967f6e56e56c3e084f80b417c124b

For how I did this for another feature that the kernel may or not
support, perf_event_open() fails, it notices that in
perf_missing_features and then later evsel__open_strerror() returns a
sensible warning, reacting to something the running kernel returned.
