This is a profiler class for the perf profiler in ChromeOS. It differs from
the existing perf profiler in autotset by directly substituting the options
passed to the initialize function into the "perf" command line. It allows one
to specify which perf command to run and thus what type of profile to collect
(e.g. "perf record" or "perf stat"). It also does not produce a perf report
on the client (where there are no debug symbols) but instead copies
the file back to the server for analysis.
