That would be fine. I also think 'perf ftrace latency' is
bit too long. But if we would add a new feature
like argdist (in BCC) later, I thought it'd be nice being
a subcommand in the perf ftrace together.

But it's up to you. I'll make a change if you prefer
'flat' (or how about 'fnlat' instead?).
