Subject[PATCH 10/15] perf hists: Accumulate hist entry stat based on the callchain
Date
From: Namhyung Kim <namhyung.kim@lge.com>

Call add_hist_entry() for each callchain node to get an accumulated
stat for an entry. However skip nodes which do not have symbol info
as they caused subtle problems.

AFAICS the current sort methods cannot distinguish entries with NULL
dso/sym well so that processing a callchian for an entry that doesn't
have symbol info might add a period to a same entry multiple times.
It ended up with an entry that have more than 100% of accumulated
period value which is not good.
