String lists defining the core and CPU threads topology.
+The string lists are followed by a variable length array
+which contains core_id and socket_id of each cpu.
+The number of entries can be determined by the size of the
+section minus the sizes of both string lists.

struct {
struct perf_header_string_list cores; /* Variable length */
struct perf_header_string_list threads; /* Variable length */
+ struct {
+ uint32_t core_id;
+ uint32_t socket_id;
