Subject[PATCH 01/38] perf tools: Use a software dummy event to track task/mmap events
Date
Add APIs for software dummy event to track task/comm/mmap events
separately. The perf record will use them to save such events in a
separate mmap buffer to make it easy to index. This is a preparation of
multi-thread support which will come later.
