so 'dwarf_callchain_users' was introduced with:
eabad8c6856f perf unwind: Do not look just at the global callchain_param.record_mode

which wasn't backported to 4.4.y and it seems it will need more
dependencies to be applied properly

however if I revert aforementioned patch:
faece3af8072 perf report: Add warning when libunwind not compiled in

it compiles for me.. actualy I'm not sure why it went to stable,
it's just user info/warning
