Right so perf cannot do this. And I'm not sure that's fixable, it
depends a bit on how the cqm thing deals with inherited events, IFF it
can reuse RMIDs for inherited events we might be able to extend the
syscall to install 'inherited' events throughout the process group,
instead of just the one thread.
