Looks good.

My only suggestion is that, when the utility picks a default binary
because the user didn't specify one explicitly, the utility should print
the name of the binary that it is reading.  Otherwise, I expect that
someday someone (quite possibly me) will have mismatched
/usr/sbin/ovs-vswitchd and /usr/lib/debug/usr/sbin/ovs-vswitchd.debug
and end up confused.  It may still happen if we print the binary name,
but it might help, too.
