Even though multiple `event=x` options are allowed, the canonical way to turn on allocation and lock profiling is `event=cpu,alloc[=interval],lock[=threshold]` (interval and threshold are optional).

So, instead of making `event` a multi-option, my suggestion is to add `alloc` and `lock` as separate options that will be directly translated to async-profiler's peer options.
