    Well, there was no assumption that 'perf report' would run on the same
    directory as 'perf record', the user may have moved to a different
    directory or transferred the file to a different machine.

    Also it would have to check that the vmlinux on the path is suitable
    (that build-id matches), currently it does that just at 'perf report'
    time, that is when it will need to use it. At record time we just
    collect the build-ids.

    With that in mind, how do you think it should be phrased?
