+perf-inject - Filter to augment the events stream with additional information
+'perf inject <options>'
+perf-inject reads a perf-record event stream and repipes it to stdout. At any
+point the processing code can inject other events into the event stream - in
+this case build-ids (-b option) are read and injected as needed into the event
+Build-ids are just the first user of perf-inject - potentially anything that
+needs userspace processing to augment the events stream with additional
+information could make use of this facility.
+ Inject build-ids into the output stream
+ Be more verbose.
