I ran into a new regression with my patch applied, after doing more randconfig
builds:

In file included from /git/arm-soc/include/linux/kaiser.h:5,
                 from /git/arm-soc/arch/x86/events/intel/ds.c:4:
arch/x86/include/asm/kaiser.h:34:10: error: unknown type name
'pteval_t'; did you mean 'dev_t'?

Maybe it's better to just to the last one-line change in include/linux/kaiser.h.
