Subject[PATCH] perf: replace automatic const char[] variables by statics
Date
An automatic const char[] variable gets initialized at runtime, just
like any other automatic variable. For long strings, that uses a lot of
stack and wastes time building the string; e.g. for the "No %s
allocation events..." case one has

444516: 48 b8 4e 6f 20 25 73 20 61 6c movabs $0x6c61207325206f4e,%rax # "No %s al"
...
444674: 48 89 45 80 mov %rax,-0x80(%rbp)
444678: 48 b8 6c 6f 63 61 74 69 6f 6e movabs $0x6e6f697461636f6c,%rax # "location"
444682: 48 89 45 88 mov %rax,-0x78(%rbp)
444686: 48 b8 20 65 76 65 6e 74 73 20 movabs $0x2073746e65766520,%rax # " events "
444690: 66 44 89 55 c4 mov %r10w,-0x3c(%rbp)
444695: 48 89 45 90 mov %rax,-0x70(%rbp)
444699: 48 b8 66 6f 75 6e 64 2e 20 20 movabs $0x20202e646e756f66,%rax

Make them all static so that the compiler just references objects in .rodata.
