Without this patch we have:

# perf record -e '{cycles/period=1/,instructions/period=2/}:S' sleep 1
[ perf record: Woken up 1 times to write data ]
[ perf record: Captured and wrote 0.051 MB perf.data (6 samples) ]
#
# perf evlist -v
cycles/period=1/: size: 120, { sample_period, sample_freq }: 1, sample_type: IP|TID|TIME|READ|ID, read_format: ID|GROUP, disabled: 1, mmap: 1, comm: 1, enable_on_exec: 1, task: 1, sample_id_all: 1, exclude_guest: 1, mmap2: 1, comm_exec: 1, ksymbol: 1, bpf_event: 1
instructions/period=2/: size: 120, config: 0x1, sample_type: IP|TID|TIME|READ|ID, read_format: ID|GROUP, sample_id_all: 1, exclude_guest: 1
#

So indeed the period=2 is being cleared for the second event in that
group.
