Subject[PATCH] perf: save RAM when filtering events
The code mentioned wanting to use an implementation of log10() in the dvb
drivers. I am not aware why that specific implementation is mentioned.
I used the implementation found in `math.h`.

I tested this patch passing 200 syscalls to filter on a `perf trace -e ${syscalls} ls`
call. You can see the commands used and a snipped of the valgrind results here:
https://termbin.com/k4of

Before: 61,910,110 bytes allocated
After: 61,907,045 bytes allocated

perf used to allocate space in excess to build the filtering expressions.
now perf only allocates the space necessary and not more.
