No problem, thanks for reviewing them!

They've been working fine for me - playing with the Python support over
the past few weeks, I haven't seen any problems, but there's one other
patch that came up later that you might also want to take a look, with
the title [PATCH] perf record: filter out perf process tracepoint
events. Here's a link to that patch, in case you've lost track of it:

Thanks,

Tom
