So, its the buildid processing at the end, so we can't do build-id
processing when using PERF_RECORD_COMPRESSED, otherwise we'd have to
uncompress at the end to find the PERF_RECORD_FORK/PERF_RECORD_MMAP,
etc.

[root@quaco ~]# perf record -z2 --no-buildid sleep 1
[ perf record: Woken up 1 times to write data ]
[ perf record: Captured and wrote 0.020 MB perf.data, compressed (original 0.001 MB, ratio is 2.153) ]
[root@quaco ~]# perf report -D | grep PERF_RECORD_COMP
0x4f40 [0x195]: failed to process type: 81 [Invalid argument]
Error:
failed to process sample
0 0x4f40 [0x195]: PERF_RECORD_COMPRESSED
[root@quaco ~]#

I'll play with it tomorrow.
