Actually, there are no such scripts out. Current perf python script only
supports the trace point type, while perl scriptt has the support for
general events. It is my first patch "perf script: Add general python
handler to process non-tracepoint events" which bring this (attr, sample,
raw_data) in to be on the same page as perl. So this won't be a problem
when the 3 patches are merged together.

Thanks a lot for fixing them, I'll generate perf tool patch against the
"perf/core" branch of your git tree on kernel.org from now on.

Btw, I have 2 more python scripts based on these patches, will add them
to this serie for your review.

Thanks,
Feng
