Subject: Re: Merge ftrace data of host and guest

Hi ,

One more thing I want to add that Yoshihiro YUNOMAE's  trace-merge
script does this time synchronization. We have to calculate guest
offset and then subtract with host time .

But it is not applying on current trace-cmd report output format and
not giving desired output .
