For some architectures (like arm), there are architecture-

This patch adds support for parsing standard events from
arch-defined JSONs, and fixing up vendor events when they
have implemented these events as standard.
Support is also ensured that the vendor may implement their
own custom events.
A new step is added to the pmu events parsing to fix up the
vendor events with the arch-standard events.
The arch-defined JSONs must be placed in the arch root
folder for preprocessing prior to tree JSON processing.
In the vendor JSON, to specify that the arch event is
supported, the keyword "ArchStdEvent" should be used,
"BriefDescription": "L1D cache access, write"
No other JSON objects are strictly required. However,
for other objects added, these take precedence over
architecture defined standard events, thus supporting
separate events which have the same event code.

Ithink this could be just CHOSTFLAGS_jevents.o = -I$(srctree)/tools/include
Fine, it could be argued to keep as is, but not a big deal
it's just for the list.h right?
Right, for linux/list.h
