Subject: [PATCH 3/3] perf script: Provide additional sample information on
 generic events

 perf script: Provide additional sample information on
 generic events  to Python scripts, including pid, tid, and cpu for which the
 event was  recorded. At the moment, the pointer to the sample struct is
 passed to  scripts, which seems to be of little use. The patch puts this
 information in  dictionaries for easy access by Python scripts.
