Not going to argue for or against this patch, but I think the reasoning you
give in your commit message is outdated:

https://github.com/brendangregg/FlameGraph/commit/
4b7b3169ed303d33fb710e1b9de235b84cc119d3

I.e. with a recent FlameGraph, you can generate flame graphs for different
events just fine, without any intermediate step.

Cheers
