For example (not tested):

  static inline bool perf_event_can_insert_to_map(struct perf_event_attr 
*attr)
  {
     /* is inherit? */
     if (attr->inherit)
         return false;

     /* is software event? */
     if (attr->type == PERF_TYPE_SOFTWARE)
         if (attr->config == PERF_COUNT_SW_BPF_OUTPUT)
             return true;
         else
             return false;

     /* Comment... */
     if (attr->type == PERF_TYPE_RAW)
         return true;
     if (attr->type == PERF_TYPE_HARDWARE)
         return true;
     return false;
  }

  ...
  if (!perf_event_can_insert_to_map(attr))
     ....

Do you think redability is improved?

Thank you.
