sorry for delay

ok, so we first fix the cpus on hybrid events and then
propagate maps.. I guess it's ok, because it's in libperf
and that has no notion of hybrid so far

could you please rename that function so it's also obvious
it's for hybrid only

  evlist__fix_hybrid_cpus ? not sure ;-)

and add some comment with example to explain what the
function is doing

thanks,
jirka
