SubjectRe: [PATCH] perf tool: save cmdline from user in file header vs what is passed to record

Yes, you need to manually add the pfm_header__set_cmdline(). That begs
the question
as to whether or not it would not be better to move this call directly into
the parse_option() function given that it must be done BEFORE parsing actually
takes place.That way we would be sure all present and future commands would
be covered.
