Subject[PATCH 1/1] perf report: Correct display of samples and events in header
Date
This patch prints the number of samples and the count of performance events separately. This allows comparing performance of different applications with each other. Previously, the sample count was displayed against an 'Events:' heading. With this patch, the header now reads (for example):

Samples: 5K of event 'instructions'
Event count (approx.): 2993026545

The patch covers both the stdio and the browser interface.
