Subject[PATCH 02/25] perf report: Fix sample type validation for synthesized callchains
Date
Processing instruction tracing data (e.g. Intel PT) can synthesize
callchains e.g.

$ perf record -e intel_pt//u uname
$ perf report --stdio --itrace=ige

However perf report's callgraph option gets extra validation, so:

$ perf report --stdio --itrace=ige -gflat
Error:
Selected -g or --branch-history but no callchain data. Did
you call 'perf record' without -g?
# To display the perf.data header info,
# please use --header/--header-only options.
#

Fix the validation to know about instruction tracing options so
above command works.

A side-effect of the change is that the default option to
accumulate the callchain of child functions comes into force.
To get the previous behaviour the --no-children option can be
used e.g.

$ perf report --stdio --itrace=ige -gflat --no-children
