Subjectperf: store and retrieve trace event names in the perf.data file
In order to be able to use trace events, a key aspect is the "type" field;
this is the id of the event that you recorded, as stored in the /sys/kernel/debug/events/*/*/id file.
What is currently missing is a way to map the id number (which is not abi stable)
to the event that was recorded.
This patch adds the facility that stores the trace event name and id in the perf.data file,
and then allows users of it to map the ID back to the original string.
