Subject: [PATCH 11/11] perf, tools: Add a --no-desc flag to perf list

From: Andi Kleen <ak@...ux.intel.com>

Add a --no-desc flag to perf list to not print the event descriptions
that were earlier added for JSON events. This may be useful to
get a less crowded listing.

It's still default to print descriptions as that is the more useful
default for most users.

Before:

% perf list
...
  baclears.any                                       [Counts the total number when the front end is
                                                      resteered, mainly when the BPU cannot provide a
                                                      correct prediction and this is corrected by other
                                                      branch handling mechanisms at the front end]
  br_inst_exec.all_branches                          [Speculative and retired branches]

After:

% perf list --no-desc
...
  baclears.any                                       [Kernel PMU event]
  br_inst_exec.all_branches                          [Kernel PMU event]

v2: Rename --quiet to --no-desc. Add option to man page.
