Subject: [PATCH v2 03/10] tools, perf, script: Add --insn-trace for instruction decoding

From: Andi Kleen <ak@...ux.intel.com>

Add a --insn-trace short hand option for decoding and disassembling
instruction streams for intel_pt. This automatically pipes the
output into the xed disassembler to generate disassembled instructions.
This just makes this use model much nicer to use

Before

% perf record -e intel_pt// ...
% perf script --itrace=i0ns --ns -F +insn,-event,-period | xed -F insn: -A -64

Now

% perf record -e intel_pt// ...
% perf script --insn-trace
... same output ...
