Hmm.. it seems that it's exactly sorted by the data symbol addresses, so
I don't see any problem here. What did you expect? If you want to see
those symbol_daddr,pid pair to be sorted by overhead, you can use the
one of -F or -s option only.

IOW, "perf mem report -F overhead,symbol_daddr,pid" and "perf mem report
-s symbol_daddr,pid" should show same result. FYI but "perf mem report
-F overhead,symbol_daddr,pid -s symbol_addr,pid" will be different.

It's due to a compatibility reason. If -s option is used without -F
option, it'll prepend 'overhead' sort key to preserve old behavior (adds
the fields to output but sort by overhead only).

Thanks,
Namhyung
