But it's not just for single cpu since task can migrate so we need to
look at other cpu's data too.  Thus we use the ordered events queue
and round events help to determine when to flush the data.  Without
the round events, it'd consume huge amount of memory during report.

If we separate tracking records and process them first, we should be
able to process samples immediately without sorting them in the
ordered event queue.  This will save both cpu cycles and memory
footprint significantly IMHO.
