From: Kan Liang <kan.liang@linux.intel.com>

Perf stat doesn't count the uncore event aliases from the same uncore
block in a group, for example:

  perf stat -e '{unc_m_cas_count.all,unc_m_clockticks}' -a -I 1000
  #           time             counts unit events
       1.000447342      <not counted>      unc_m_cas_count.all
       1.000447342      <not counted>      unc_m_clockticks
       2.000740654      <not counted>      unc_m_cas_count.all
       2.000740654      <not counted>      unc_m_clockticks

The output is very misleading. It gives a wrong impression that the
uncore event doesn't work.

An uncore block could be composed by several PMUs. An uncore event alias
is a joint name which means the same event runs on all PMUs of a block.
Perf doesn't support mixed events from different PMUs in the same group.
It is wrong to put uncore event aliases in a big group.

The right way is to split the big group into multiple small groups which
only include the events from the same PMU.
Only uncore event aliases from the same uncore block should be specially
handled here. It doesn't make sense to mix the uncore events with other
uncore events from different blocks or even core events in a group.

With the patch:
  #           time             counts unit events
     1.001557653            140,833      unc_m_cas_count.all
     1.001557653      1,330,231,332      unc_m_clockticks
     2.002709483             85,007      unc_m_cas_count.all
     2.002709483      1,429,494,563      unc_m_clockticks

Change since V2:
- Fix a core dump caused by two exactly same evens in a group.
  Adding a check in parse_events__set_leader_for_uncore_aliase() to
  distinguish the leader from other members, even they have the same
  event name.

could you please use list_last_entry and list_first_entry in here?

setting "is_leader = false" basically breaks the loop,
because of that !leader check above, so why continue?

it's not so obvious from the code how the groups
are set.. please describe that logic in the comment

Because the evsel doesn't belong to leader anymore.
We should not add it into leaders[].
