If I'm reading the derivation of eventsel right, this will end up
treating cycle counter events (aliased to SW_INCR) differently from
CPU_CYCLES, which doesn't seem desirable.
Also, if the user did try to blacklist SW_INCR for ridiculous reasons,
we'd need to special-case kvm_pmu_software_increment() to make it (not)
work as expected, right?
memset(&attr, 0, sizeof(struct perf_event_attr));
attr.type = PERF_TYPE_RAW;
attr.size = sizeof(attr);
