So, I think Andi is saying that the s/390 kernel should map the generic
transaction events (cpu/cycles-t/, cpu/tx-start/, etc) to the events you
want to make 'perf stat -T' use, that way 'perf stat' doesn't have to be
changed, it will continue asking for the generic transaction event names
and then the kernel does the translation.

Just like we map "cycles" to different underlying events in different
architectures, right?
