Have you seen the error handling suggestion above?

Sure, you could for instance have something like:

	struct perf_event_attr attr = {
		.watermark        = 1,
		.bpf_event        = 1,
		.wakeup_watermark = 1,
	}
 	struct perf_evlist *evlist = perf_evlist__new_side_band(&attr);


And the other details will be set by it, i.e. the .config

	.type	          = PERF_TYPE_SOFTWARE,
	.config           = PERF_COUNT_SW_DUMMY,
	.size	   = sizeof(attr), /* to capture ABI version */

And the idx arg.
