[PATCH 01/10] perf script: Add --[no-]-demangle/--[no-]-demangle-kernel

From: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo
Date: Fri Aug 28 2015 - 14:09:59 EST

From: Mark Drayton <mbd@xxxxxx>

Sometimes when post-processing output from `perf script` one does not
want to demangle C++ symbol names. Add an option to allow this.

Also add --[no-]demangle-kernel to be consistent with top/report/probe.
