I wonder if it is really necessary to have a python file to post process the
perf stat output?

commit 7473ee56dbc9 ("perf test: Add checking for perf stat CSV output.")
the same approach was done which led to issues on s390 and required an additional
patch to fix this:
commit ec906102e5b7 ("perf test: Fix "perf stat CSV output linter" test on s390").

I wonder if you can do the perf stat output checking using bash/linux tools as it
was done in commit ec906102e5b7. This would make maintenance much easier.

Just me 2 cents...
