Right, we need to move that into a library though (always meant to do
that, never got around to doing it).

That way the app can link against a dso with weak empty stubs and have
perf record LD_PRELOAD a version that has a suitable implementation.

That all has the advantage of not exposing the actual interface like we
do now.
