... and we want is:

is_pmu_core("cpum_sf") == true
is_pmu_core("cpum_cf") == true
is_pmu_core("tracepoint") == false
is_pmu_core("software") == false

However, your code also returns true for "tracepoint" and "software".

You check if there's a directory under event_source/devices/ for the PMU
name, and every PMU should have such a directory.

For example, on my x86 box I have

[mark@lakrids:~]% ls /sys/bus/event_source/devices
breakpoint power uncore_cbox_13 uncore_cbox_9 uncore_qpi_0
cpu software uncore_cbox_2 uncore_ha_0 uncore_qpi_1
cstate_core tracepoint uncore_cbox_3 uncore_ha_1 uncore_r2pcie
cstate_pkg uncore_cbox_0 uncore_cbox_4 uncore_imc_0 uncore_r3qpi_0
intel_bts uncore_cbox_1 uncore_cbox_5 uncore_imc_1 uncore_r3qpi_1
intel_cqm uncore_cbox_10 uncore_cbox_6 uncore_imc_4 uncore_ubox
intel_pt uncore_cbox_11 uncore_cbox_7 uncore_imc_5
msr uncore_cbox_12 uncore_cbox_8 uncore_pcu

... and with your patch and the below hack applied:

diff --git a/tools/perf/util/pmu.c b/tools/perf/util/pmu.c

If it's fine to have a tautological is_pmu_core(), then we can remove it

My understanding was that we have the is_pmu_core() check to ensure that
we don't associate aliases with other PMUs in the system.

For example, on some arm platforms the CPU PMU isn't available, and we
shouldn't add the CPU PMU aliases just because we have a software PMU.

It looks like it works on my x86 box, at least, but I do think this is
wrong in some cases.
