Subject[PATCH 04/10] perf, tools: Add --branch-history option to report
Date
From: Andi Kleen <ak@linux.intel.com>

Add a --branch-history option to perf report that changes all
the settings necessary for using the branches in callstacks.

This is just a short cut to make this nicer to use, it does
not enable any functionality by itself.

v2: Change sort order. Rename option to --branch-history to
be less confusing.
v3: Updates
v4: Fix conflict with newer perf base
v5: Port to latest tip
v6: Add more comments. Remove CCKEY_ADDRESS setting. Remove
unnecessary branch_mode setting. Use a boolean.
Signed-off-by: Andi Kleen <ak@linux.intel.com>
