How about the '*invalid_chains' stats here? I dont see
it incremented in the parsing routine.

Also the current behaviour is to increments stats for invalid
callchains, but dont fail. With your changes we fail during the
parsing.

On the other hand.. maybe we should fail ;-) I think that
invalid callchain data is serious enough to be overlooked
by not seeing the nr_invalid_chains got incremented.

let's see other comments and then silently push it :-)
