Subject: [PATCH v2 08/10] perf, tools, script: Make itrace script default to all calls

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

By default perf script for itrace outputs sampled instructions or
branches. In my experience this is confusing to users because it's
hard to correlate with real program behavior. The sampling makes
sense for tools like report that actually sample to reduce
the run time, but run time is normally not a problem for perf script.
It's better to give an accurate representation of the program flow.

Default perf script to output all calls for itrace. That's a much saner
default. The old behavior can be still requested with
perf script --itrace=ibxwpe100000
