Subject[PATCH] perf tools: Fix printable strings in python3 scripts
Date
Hagen reported broken strings in python3 tracepoint scripts:

make PYTHON=python3
./perf record -e sched:sched_switch -a -- sleep 5
./perf script --gen-script py
./perf script -s ./perf-script.py

[..]
sched__sched_switch 7 563231.759525792 0 swapper \
prev_comm=bytearray(b'swapper/7\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00'), \
prev_pid=0, prev_prio=120, prev_state=, next_comm=bytearray(b'mutex-thread-co\x00'),

The problem is in is_printable_array function that does not take
zero byte into account and claim such string as not printable,
so the code will create byte array instead of string.
