yeah :-)

I'll soon start working on 'perf regtest', to start accumulating
regression tests a la 'perf bench', as these silly bugs are worrying

Some will require more than one machine, and of different archs, so that
we can properly test 'perf archive' and the buildid machinery, etc. Some
need to compare what we get from kallsyms with what we get from vmlinux
of same buildid, etc.

We'll use this when developing new tools or changing the core code, and
a subset of it can also be used by users to sanity test their

If not I'll have to continue relying on you as my regression test ;-)
