Thanks, that got rid of the segfault, and perf sched replay runs without
crashing now.

Am I missing a config option for 'perf timechart' to work?
I tried running 4 infloop executables (on a 4-core box), the last one as
argument to perf timechart record.
Only one of those processes has shown up, as using CPU for 26.5ms, and
then sleeping (when in fact it was running the entire time).
The CPU graphs are mostly white, with a thicker blue line where a.out
shown up, and some scarce thin blue lines.


Best regards,
