perf: Allocate context task_ctx_data for child event

Currently we use perf_event_context::task_ctx_data to save and restore
the LBR status when the task is scheduled out and in.

We don't allocate it for child contexts, which results in shorter task's
LBR stack, because we don't save the history from previous run and start
over every time we schedule the task in.

I made a test to generate samples with LBR call stack and got higher
numbers on bigger chain depths:

before: after:
LBR call chain: nr: 1 60561 498127
LBR call chain: nr: 2 0 0
LBR call chain: nr: 3 107030 2172
LBR call chain: nr: 4 466685 62758
LBR call chain: nr: 5 2307319 878046
LBR call chain: nr: 6 48713 495218
LBR call chain: nr: 7 1040 4551
LBR call chain: nr: 8 481 172
LBR call chain: nr: 9 878 120
LBR call chain: nr: 10 2377 6698
LBR call chain: nr: 11 28830 151487
LBR call chain: nr: 12 29347 339867
LBR call chain: nr: 13 4 22
LBR call chain: nr: 14 3 53
