Subject: [PATCH 3.19.y-ckt 168/170] perf stat: Document --detailed option

3.19.8-ckt18 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

---8<------------------------------------------------------------

From: Borislav Petkov <bp@...e.de>

commit f594bae08183fb6b57db55387794ece3e1edf6f6 upstream.

I'm surprised this remained undocumented since at least 2011. And it is
actually a very useful switch, as Steve and I came to realize recently.

Add the text from

  2cba3ffb9a9d ("perf stat: Add -d -d and -d -d -d options to show more CPU events")

which added the incrementing aspect to -d.
