Note, this script hard-codes certain aspects of the output format:

+my $regex_traceevent =
+my $regex_fragdetails = 'page=([0-9a-f]*) pfn=([0-9]*) alloc_order=([0-9]*)
+fallback_order=([0-9]*) pageblock_order=([0-9]*) alloc_migratetype=([0-9]*)
+fallback_migratetype=([0-9]*) fragmenting=([0-9]) change_ownership=([0-9])';
+my $regex_statname = '[-0-9]*\s\((.*)\).*';
+my $regex_statppid = '[-0-9]*\s\(.*\)\s[A-Za-z]\s([0-9]*).*';

the proper appproach is to parse /debug/tracing/events/mm/*/format.
That is why we emit a format string - to detach tools and reduce the
semi-ABI effect.
