Subject: [PATCH 32/37] perf report: Add --multi-thread option and config item

The --multi-thread option is to enable parallel processing so user can
force serial processing even for multi-file data.  It default to false
but users also can changes this by setting "report.multi_thread"
config option in ~/.perfconfig file.
