What kind of stalls are you looking to measure?

The core2 supports many kind of stall events.  Check out Intel Vol3b 
documentation, or the libpfm4 showevtinfo utility for a list of them all.

perf only directly supports a small subset of "generalized" events, and 
only then if a kernel developer bothers to hook up the proper events in 
the kernel sources.

If you do find a likely event you want to use, you can make perf use it as 
a "raw" event.
