Yes, but won't the jitdump timestamps already be in order?

(prev_event->timestamp <= j) must be always true because otherwise you would
have injected the jit mmap event already.

So perf is about to deliver an event with timestamp 'event->timestamp', so
you just need to deliver all your events that have not already been
delivered but have a timestamp < event->timestamp

It can sort them all at once, but finished_round is an optimization that
starts delivering "early" events before having to sort the "later" events.
The result is still that the delivered events are in sorted order.

If you were to queue the events for sorting, yes. What I suggested was
delivering your events directly at the "right time".
