Hi Dmitry,

Yes, I know, the non-portability of perf.data is a big issue, and one
of the design goals of spr-replay.

The generated program by spr-replay is perfectly portable, but
due to the way perf data format is, they are not. We can't do anything
about perf.data, but the spr-replay program should be trivially portable.

I'll switch on the mainline kernel tag and retry.
