Subject[PATCH] perf script: introduce deltatime option
Date
For some kind of analysis a deltatime output is more human friendly and reduce
the cognitive load for further analysis.

The following output demonstrate the new option "deltatime": calculate
the time difference in relation to the previous event.

$ perf script --deltatime
