Subject[PATCH] perf callchain: fixup help/config for no-unwinding
From: Rabin Vincent <>

Since 841e3558b2d ("perf callchain: Recording 'dwarf' callchains do not need
DWARF unwinding support"), --call-graph dwarf is allowed in perf record
even without unwind support. A couple of other places don't reflect
this yet though: the help text should list dwarf as a valid record mode
and the dump_size config should be respected too.
