right,

currently (without namhyung's changes) there's initial 'name' sorting
broken by hists_link

after the change, it gets sorted 'but' there are dummy entries added
which brake the sort again.. this is sorted out within the multi diff
patches

so the bottom line is that currently the sorting is broken anyway,
and the fix is comming in upcomming patchset ;)

by default it'll sorted by baseline and you can specify -o X to sort
by specified file

thanks,
