This option decides which allocator is to be analyzed if neither
'--slab' nor '--page' option is used. Default is 'slab'.
+record.*::
+ record.build-id::
+ This option can be 'cache', 'no-cache' or 'skip'.
+ 'cache' is to post-process data and save/update the binaries into
+ the build-id cache (in ~/.debug). This is the default.
+ But if this option is 'no-cache', it will not update the build-id cache.
+ 'skip' skips post-processing and does not update the cache.
