Of course we need to shorten the event names, currently they are too
long and need at least 45 characters only for names, how can we show
another useful info on the screen.

Please suggest some better short names for :

L1-data-Cache-Load-Reference [Hardware cache event]
L1-data-Cache-Load-Miss [Hardware cache event]
L1-data-Cache-Store-Reference [Hardware cache event]
L1-data-Cache-Store-Miss [Hardware cache event]
L1-data-Cache-Prefetch-Reference [Hardware cache event]
L1-data-Cache-Prefetch-Miss [Hardware cache event]
L1-instruction-Cache-Load-Reference [Hardware cache event]
L1-instruction-Cache-Load-Miss [Hardware cache event]
L1-instruction-Cache-Store-Reference [Hardware cache event]
L1-instruction-Cache-Store-Miss [Hardware cache event]
L1-instruction-Cache-Prefetch-Reference [Hardware cache event]
L1-instruction-Cache-Prefetch-Miss [Hardware cache event]
L2-Cache-Load-Reference [Hardware cache event]
L2-Cache-Load-Miss [Hardware cache event]
L2-Cache-Store-Reference [Hardware cache event]
L2-Cache-Store-Miss [Hardware cache event]
L2-Cache-Prefetch-Reference [Hardware cache event]
L2-Cache-Prefetch-Miss [Hardware cache event]
Data-TLB-Cache-Load-Reference [Hardware cache event]
Data-TLB-Cache-Load-Miss [Hardware cache event]
Data-TLB-Cache-Store-Reference [Hardware cache event]
Data-TLB-Cache-Store-Miss [Hardware cache event]
Data-TLB-Cache-Prefetch-Reference [Hardware cache event]
Data-TLB-Cache-Prefetch-Miss [Hardware cache event]
Instruction-TLB-Cache-Load-Reference [Hardware cache event]
Instruction-TLB-Cache-Load-Miss [Hardware cache event]
Instruction-TLB-Cache-Store-Reference [Hardware cache event]
Instruction-TLB-Cache-Store-Miss [Hardware cache event]
Instruction-TLB-Cache-Prefetch-Reference [Hardware cache event]
Instruction-TLB-Cache-Prefetch-Miss [Hardware cache event]
Branch-Cache-Load-Reference [Hardware cache event]
Branch-Cache-Load-Miss [Hardware cache event]
Branch-Cache-Store-Reference [Hardware cache event]
Branch-Cache-Store-Miss [Hardware cache event]
Branch-Cache-Prefetch-Reference [Hardware cache event]
Branch-Cache-Prefetch-Miss [Hardware cache event]
