    Not on all terminals. For example my terminal will just cut anything
    beyond the col limit:

    # perf report --stdio
    No kallsyms or vmlinux with build-id 122214021a666675f6e5ff97d70a85ce7139c0e7 was found
    [kernel.kallsyms] with build id 122214021a666675f6e5ff97d70a85ce7139c0e7 not found, continuing without s
    Kernel address maps (/proc/{kallsyms,modules}) were restricted, check /proc/sys/kernel/kptr_restrict bef

    So we generally want to generate error messages to look good on col80
    - it should not be hard here, right?
