Subject: [PATCH 06/15] perf report: Fall-back to function name comparison for -g srcline

From: Milian Wolff <milian.wolff@...b.com>

When a callchain entry has no srcline available, we ended up comparing
the instruction pointer. I consider this to be not too useful. Rather, I
think we should group the entries by function name, which this patch
adds. For people who want to split the data on the IP boundary, using
`-g address` is the correct choice.
