I will drop this filter patch if userspace can parse address range fast.
Daniel suggested a new interface which could get necessary information
from the process with binary format so will it will remove endoce/decode
overhead as well as overhead we don't need to get like directory look

Yes, with this filter option, it's best performance for a specific
usecase but sometime we need to give up *best* thing for *general*
stuff. I belive it's one of the category. ;-)
