+Tracing data disassembler
+-------------------------
+
+'perf script' supports to use script to parse tracing packet and rely on
+'objdump' for disassembled lines, this can convert tracing data to readable
+program execution flow for easily reviewing tracing data.
+
+The CoreSight trace disassembler is located in the folder:
+tools/perf/scripts/python/arm-cs-trace-disasm.py.  This script support below
+options:
+
+	-d, --objdump: Set path to objdump executable, this option is
+		       mandatory.
+	-k, --vmlinux: Set path to vmlinux file.
+	-v, --verbose: Enable debugging log, after enable this option the
+		       script dumps every event data.
+
+Below is one example for using python script to dump CoreSight trace
+disassembler:
+
+	$ perf script -s arm-cs-trace-disasm.py -i perf.data \
+	    -F cpu,event,ip,addr,sym -- -d objdump -k ./vmlinux > cs-disasm.log
+
+Below is one example for the disassembler log:
