+ recorded.

+ 'perf trace record <script>' to record the events required for 'perf
+ trace report'. <script> is the name displayed in the output of
+ 'perf trace --list' i.e. the actual script name minus any language
+ extension.
+
+ 'perf trace report <script>' to run and display the results of
+ <script>. <script> is the name displayed in the output of 'perf
+ trace --list' i.e. the actual script name minus any language
+ extension. The perf.data output from a previous run of 'perf trace
+ record <script>' is used and should be present for this command to
+ succeed.
