Hey Tom,

There are quite a few Python scripts in the kernel source tree. Most of
them seems to reside under `tools/perf/`. I'm not familiar with perf
tools, maybe someone familiar could help.

By running `find . -name '*.py'` in the source tree, you can find lots
of Python scripts here and there as well. Hope that helps!
