Hi Jiri,

I check this question again. The '--time' option is for perf report but
not for perf record.

For perf record, we have to always walk on all samples to get the time
of first sample and the time of last sample whatever buildid_all is
enabled or not enabled. So 'rec->tool.sample = NULL' is removed.

Sorry, the previous mail was replied at midnight, I was drowsy. :(

If my answer is correct, I will not send v6. If my understanding is
still not correct, please let me know.

Thanks
Jin Yao
