This was a feature added at the request of a user, who wanted more
flexibility in making naming clearer in certain cases e.g.:

# echo 'hist:keys=next_pid:new_lat=$common_timestamp.usecs' > /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/events/sched/sched_switch/trigger

# echo 'hist:keys=pid:latency=$new_lat:onmatch(sched.sched_switch).wake2($latency,pid)' > /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/events/synthetic/wake1/trigger

I'll add a better description and exampe to the change log for this.

Tom
