'perf record --aio-cblocks=N' could imply '--aio',

I'd like to have simple/intuitive way to enable that,
without studing the meaning of the cblocks argument

# perf record --aio ...

means that I'm storing data via async writes,
and using some reasonable default for cblocks

and later on we'd add 'perf record --threads'
allowing threads based writers ;-)
