Subject: [PATCHSET 0/7] perf tools: Honor column width setting (v2)

Hello,

This patchset is to control perf report/top output column width by
-w/--column-widths option so that it can fit into the terminal size.
The -w option is there for perf report but it ignored by recent output
field changed due to some reason.  This patchset fixes it and supports
perf top also.

This is sometimes useful if your terminal is small and there's some
C++ applications which have amazingly long symbol names.  Without this
patchset user might not see those symbols on TUI, since it maps
left/right arrow keys to other functions.

The -w option sets column width starting from the first column
(overhead or optional overhead_children column unless -F option is
given).  It doesn't make sense to limit those overhead columns so it's
not a hard-limit for them.  But it *is* a hard-limit for other columns
such as comm, dso, symbol, and so on.  One can use 0 not to
limit/force a width for those columns.


For example:

  $ perf report --stdio -s comm,dso
  ...

 * changes in v2:
  - fix TUI alignment when no header is shown  (Jiri)
  - change printing order of pid sort key  (Jiri)


You can also get this from 'perf/width-v2' branch on my tree

Thanks,
