Bug Description

In TC2 android board, ftrace format is next.
<idle>-0 [002] d... 96510.575528: cpu_idle: state=1 cpu_id=2

But in my X86 ubuntu desktop, ftrace format is next.
<idle>-0 [003] 96510.599500: cpu_idle: state=1 cpu_id=3

When using this format "%*[^]]] %*s %lf:%*[^=]=%u%*[^=]=%d", It can't read the right data form X86 ubuntu desktop.
And when using this format "%*[^]]] %lf:%*[^=]=%u%*[^=]=%d", It can't read the correct data form TC2 android board.

That happens because the irq-info is set for TC2 and not for x86.

You should add this option on your x86 setup:

echo irq-info > trace_options

It would be worth in the future to set also the same trace options from idlestat on each running host.

If using Idlestat tool to read the file which reported by trace-cmd. the condition "echo irq-info > trace_options" maybe is not set yet.

and we can use the string "%*[^]]] %*d%lf:%*[^=]=%u%*[^=]=%d" instead of "%*[^]]] %*s %lf:%*[^=]=%u%*[^=]=%d".
And I test it, It can get correct data.
