We already have formatted output here, don't we? Why just don't get it
If you insist on userland app to parse and format MUTEX_PROFILING(9)
statistics, then you should be consistent and remove the header _at all_.
Anyway, I see you, phk and jhb involved in discussion. I'm out of it. If
you together decide, that header format should be broken again, then I'll
back it out and be happy with local change in my tree. That's all, I don't
want to be involved in this flame.
Totus tuus, Glebius.
