Subject[PATCH] perf tool: Fix cross-endian analysis
Date
Trying to analyze a big endian data file on little endian system
fails with the error:
0xa9b40 [0x70]: failed to process type: 9

The problem is that header parsing is not done correctly because
the file attributes are not swapped. Make it so. With this patch
able to analyze a sparc64 data file on x86_64.
