Please add "per-arch" to the summary, so that just by looking at my
inbox main page I can see what this is about.

Also how this will deal with processing a perf.data file generated on a
S/390 machine in another arch? I.e.

on s/390:

perf record -a sleep 10

on a x86_64:

scp that file
perf report -i perf.data.from.s390

?

report code should lookup a function for the architecture the perf.data
was recorded on, using the perf.data file header, etc.

        const char *arch_name = perf_env__arch(session->header->env);

Then lookup a table to find the right function, ok? See arch__find() for
an example used in the annotation code.
