Subject[PATCH 35/44] perf report: Introduce --ignore-vmlinux command line option
Date
From: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <acme@redhat.com>

We've had this in 'perf top' for quite a while, useful if one wishes
to force using /proc/kcore to do annotation using the patched kernel
instead of the ELF image it started from, aka vmlinux.
