perf hist: Clarify events_stats fields usage
Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo [Fri, 14 May 2010 16:16:55 +0000 (13:16 -0300)]
The events_stats.total field is too generic, rename it to .total_period,
and also add a comment explaining that it is the sum of all the .period
fields in samples, that is needed because we use auto-freq to avoid
sampling artifacts.

Ditto for events_stats.lost, that is the sum of all lost_event.lost
fields, i.e. the number of events the kernel dropped.

Looking at the users, builtin-sched.c can make use of these fields and
stop doing it again.
