The contents of page_owner have changed to include more information than
the stack trace. On a modern kernel, the blocks look like

Page allocated via order 0, mask 0x0(), pid 1, ts 165564237 ns, free_ts 0 ns
 register_early_stack+0x4b/0x90
 init_page_owner+0x39/0x250
 kernel_init_freeable+0x11e/0x242
 kernel_init+0x16/0x130

Sorting by the contents of .txt will result in almost no repeated pages, as
the pid, ts, and free_ts will almost never be the same. Instead, sort by
the contents of the stack trace, which we assume to be whatever is after
the first line.

This adds the ability to sort by stacktraces. This is helpful when
comparing multiple dumps of page_owner taken at different times, since
blocks will not be reordered if they were allocated/free'd.
