Subject: [PATCH 06/21] perf report: Cache cumulative callchains

It is possble that a callchain has cycles or recursive calls.  In that
case it'll end up having entries more than 100% overhead in the
output.  In order to prevent such entries, cache each callchain node
and skip if same entry already cumulated.
