Failed to know how many fields in that line, clearly there are less
separators when it is supported.

Are you saying there should be more fields when it is not supported?

Here is the output from your own commit:

      423470,,stalled-cycles-frontend,509102,100.00,65.69,frontend cycles idle
      <not supported>,,stalled-cycles-backend,0,100.00,,,,

so line 1 has 7 fields, line 2 has 9 fields, and this is expected?
