Subject[PATCH v2] perf stat: Append to default list if use -e +event
Date
The default event list includes the most common events which are widely
used by users. But with -e option, the current perf only counts the events
assigned by -e option. Users may want to collect some extra events with
the default list. For this case, users have to manually add all the events
from the default list. It's inconvenient. Also, users may don't know how to
get the default list.

Now it supports a simple syntax: -e +event

The prefix '+' tells perf to append this event (or event list) to default
event list.

Before:

root@kbl-ppc:~# ./perf stat -e power/energy-pkg/ -a -- sleep 1

Performance counter stats for 'system wide':

2.04 Joules power/energy-pkg/

1.000863884 seconds time elapsed

After:

root@kbl-ppc:~# ./perf stat -e +power/energy-pkg/ -a -- sleep 1

Performance counter stats for 'system wide':

2.11 Joules +power/energy-pkg/ # 0.000 K/sec
8,007.17 msec cpu-clock # 7.993 CPUs utilized
125 context-switches # 0.016 K/sec
8 cpu-migrations # 0.001 K/sec
2 page-faults # 0.000 K/sec

v2:
We just use a simple syntax: -e +event to append the -e event
to default list.

v1:
Create a new option '--add-default' to append -e event to
default list.
