After reading code, seems the conclusion "a count of all the fields
that are 64bits" is not valid.  PERF_SAMPLE_MASK contains bits
PERF_SAMPLE_IP and PERF_SAMPLE_TID, the corresponding fields 'pid'
and 'tid' in the structure perf_sample are u32 type.

Okay, thanks for sharing the info, it does show that it's deliberately to
not contain all fields in PERF_SAMPLE_MASK.  If so, this patch is fine
for me:
