Subject[PATCH v9 10/11] perf, tools: Add a --no-desc flag to perf list
Date
From: Andi Kleen <ak@linux.intel.com>

Add a --no-desc flag to perf list to not print the event descriptions
that were earlier added for JSON events. This may be useful to
get a less crowded listing.

It's still default to print descriptions as that is the more useful
default for most users.

Before:

% perf list
...
baclears.any [Counts the total number when the front end is
resteered, mainly when the BPU cannot provide a
correct prediction and this is corrected by other
branch handling mechanisms at the front end]
br_inst_exec.all_branches [Speculative and retired branches]

After:

% perf list --no-desc
...
baclears.any [Kernel PMU event]
br_inst_exec.all_branches [Kernel PMU event]
