Yes, they uses the same code except event_op mmap2.

The diff code doesn’t define event_op mmap2, so it fails to get the symbol.
You are right, it’s ip address. The meaning of symbol for diff and report should
be same.

But I still think the author intends to compare the ip address. Low granularity is
still useful for debugging the scaling issue. So we'd better keep both of them,
and give ip address sorting a proper key name.

"ip" means "IP address executed at the time of sample "
"symbol" means "name of function executed at the time of sample"

What about the attached patch?

Thanks,
Kan
