So I am struggling a little bit to get this working correctly. I had it
in my head that I could sort internally with -s and re-sort the output
based on -F, but it doesn't seem to be working that way.

For example with

./perf mem record -a grep -r foo /* > /dev/null
./perf mem report -F overhead,symbol_daddr,pid -s symbol_daddr,pid --stdio

I was thinking I could sort everything based on the symbol_daddr and pid.
Then re-sort the output to display the highest 'symbol_daddr,pid' pair.
But it didn't seem to work that way. Instead it seems like I get the
original sort just displayed in the -F format.

Did I misunderstand what the -F can do or I am using it wrong?

Cheers,
Don
