And here we see a difference in the fp and DWARF unwinders, have to dig
deeper into this one, perhaps using the DWARF one we have more info and
then can end up with inlines instead of what it calls.

[root@jouet ~]# perf trace --no-syscalls -e probe_libc:inet_pton/call-graph=dwarf,max-stack=4/
perf trace --no-syscalls --max-stack 4 -e probe_libc:inet_pton/call-graph=dwarf/ ping -6 -c 1 ::1
Value too large for defined data type

Grrr.

Right, there is, please see the patch below, but I need to fix the other
issues I noticed here but you haven't, perhaps we're using a different
DWARF unwinder (there are two possible libraries to use).

commit 7a24f244b452cfc0acfe35d1a6168c9a8ff483ce
Author: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com>

perf trace: Setup DWARF callchains for non-syscall events when --max-stack is used

If we use:

perf trace --max-stack=4

then the syscall events will use DWARF callchains, when available
(libunwind enabled in the build) and the printing will stop at 4 levels.

When we introduced support for tracepoint events this ended up not
applying for them, fix it.
