strace file I/O parser

From: <kbohling_at_birddog.com>

I hacked up a little strace parser then when fed input from an strace call like
this:

strace -T -ttt -o logfile svn co file:///repos/ mystuff

and you run

processTrace.py logfile

it outputs lines that tell you which file took the most I/O by name. And it
also accumulates the time statistics by system call (strace will do that
already). So you can tell which system calls are eating up all the time. File
I/O calls open/read/write/close timeings are kept per file in the filesystem.
So if you're doing tons of file I/O you can tell which files you are doing it
to, rather then just guessing.

This is the sample output from an strace of a checkout of the linux kernel
include directory.

First column is in seconds, the second one is bytes read, then bytes written,
then file,
or the second column is the name of a system call.

If anybody things it's useful, I'll happily commit it to the /tools/dev section.
