perf tools: make -C consistent across commands (for cpu list arg)
Currently the meaning of -C varies by perf command: for perf-top, perf-stat, perf-record it means cpu list. For perf-report it means comm list. Then perf-annotate, perf-report and perf-script use -c for cpu list. Fix annotate, report and script to use -C for cpu list to be consistent with top, stat and record. This means report needs to use -c for comm list which does introduce a backward compatibility change. v1 -> v2 - update perf-script.txt too Cc: Frederic Weisbecker <> Cc: Ingo Molnar <> Cc: Peter Zijlstra <> Link: Signed-off-by: David Ahern <> Signed-off-by: Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo <>
