I like this extension! I've ranted in the past about weak symbols
breaking with archives due to lazy loading [1]. In this case
tools/perf/arch/arm64/util/topdown.c has no other symbols within it
and so the weak symbol has an extra chance of being linked
incorrectly. We could add a new command line of --topdown-json to
avoid this, but there seems little difference in doing this over just
doing '-M TopDownL1'. Is it possible to use the json metric approach
for when the CPU version fails?

Thanks,
Ian
