[PATCH 3.14 32/37] perf stat: Document --detailed option

From: Greg Kroah-Hartman
Date: Mon May 02 2016 - 20:13:22 EST

3.14-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Borislav Petkov <bp@xxxxxxx>

commit f594bae08183fb6b57db55387794ece3e1edf6f6 upstream.

I'm surprised this remained undocumented since at least 2011. And it is
actually a very useful switch, as Steve and I came to realize recently.

Add the text from

2cba3ffb9a9d ("perf stat: Add -d -d and -d -d -d options to show more CPU events")

which added the incrementing aspect to -d.
