I have installed your perf/core tree on my Fedora 27 Virtual Machine
running on my Intel notebook.

Here are some commands and the output on an Intel platform:

--> Dwarf call graph and --max-stack 4 is also honoured.

I have the feeling that your fix does not work very well when
used with the --no-syscalls option.
Omitting --no-syscalls shows your explained behavior.

So there must be a difference between --no-syscalls and --syscalls
invocation.
