ordered_events__new() and ordered_events__delete(), to be consistent
with general naming for constructors and destructors in tools/perf/ :-)

I would also not use "new" as the name of the new instance, as above,
but would rather use 'oe', shortcut for ordered event, or even oevent,
as elsewhere suggested in this thread.

Agreed on all counts.

Agreed, those are for reference counting.
