SubjectRe: [PATCH] perf tools: Fix bug for perf kvm report without guestmount.

>> When more than 1 VM, the cases you provided is all about
>> record-report the symbols from __all__ guests. How about I want to
>> record-report one of them?
>> Example:
>> There are 2 guests are running different kernels, I want to
>> record-report VM1.
>>
>> Currently, we can use --guestmount to get the symbols of VM1, but we
>> can not remove the symbols of VM2 from report. It means the
>> percentage of each symbol is not the symbol only in this VM1.
>>
>> What I want with introducing guestpid is to record-report the symbols
>> only from VM1, and ignore VM2.
