Usually thread__comm_foo() would suggest that we return the "foo" from a thread comm.
For example thread__comm_len() returns the len of the last thread comm.
thread__comm_str() returns the string of the last thread comm.

So thread__comm_time() suggests that we return the timestamp of the default thread comm.
Ideally all thread__comm_foo() accessors should now take a timestamp as an argument. Now there
are quite some callers of such APIs, I'm not sure they will all turn into passing a precise timestamp,
but the current callers are interested in the last comm so perhaps those can be turned into thread__last_comm[_str]().
The call would gain some clarity.

Yes, handling the thread's comm lifecycle correctly with fetching the right comm at a given time is
the evolution I had in mind. I haven't looked at the rest of your patchset but this
change alone seem to go to the right direction.

Thanks!
