I'm using DELIMITER to resolve two different cases for format of iiostat 
command:
The first one is the command with an option for iiostat mode, for example:
'perf iiostat show' which should be converted to 'perf stat 
--iiostat=show' or
'perf iiostat 0000:ae,0000:5d' to 'perf stat --iiostat=0000:ae,0000:5d'.
The second is the command without any option for iiostat: 'perf iiostat 
-I 1000'
should be converted to 'perf stat --iiostat -I 1000'.

Thanks,
Alexander
