SubjectMake perf script easier to use for itrace
Date
Implement a range of improvements to make it easier to look
at itrace traces with perf script. Nothing here couldn't be done
before with some additional scripting, but add simple high
level options to make it easier to use.

% perf record -e intel_pt//k -a sleep 1

Show function calls:

% perf script --call-trace
perf 900 [000] 194167.205652203: ([kernel.kallsyms]) perf_pmu_enable
perf 900 [000] 194167.205652203: ([kernel.kallsyms]) __x86_indirect_thunk_rax
perf 900 [000] 194167.205652203: ([kernel.kallsyms]) event_filter_match

Show function calls and returns:

% perf script --call-ret-trace

Show instruction traces (using XED):
