I thought about similar optimizations. However, this is not easy.

Tag of a BPF program is calculated _before_ JiT, so we really cannot
say two programs with same tag are identical. Current implementation
iterates over all bpf program IDs, so same program id will not appear
twice in the same perf session.

I think the more realistic opportunity of optimizations comes from
sharing the dsos cross multiple perf.data files.

Thanks,
Song
