SubjectRe: [PATCH 01/17] perf report: Ask ordered events for --tasks option

Try to be more verbose, what actual effect this will have in this particular
case?

So, I had to try it to see the effects and explain them:

We don't have perf calling perf calling make, etc, the second perf actually is
'make', i.e. there was reordering of PERF_RECORD_COMM/PERF_RECORD_FORK:

Look for FORK and COMM meta events, for those tids:

[root@jouet acme]# perf report -D | egrep 'PERF_RECORD_(FORK|COMM)' | egrep '3243[34]'
0 14774650990679 0x1a3cd8 [0x38]: PERF_RECORD_FORK(32433:32433):(3489:3489)

[root@jouet acme]#

So they are on different CPUs, thus ring buffers, and when we don't use
ordered_events, we end up mixing that up, right?
