Subject[RFC 2/2] perf stat: Fix shadow stats for clock events
Date
Commit 0aa802a79469 ("perf stat: Get rid of extra clock display
function") introduced scale and unit for clock events. Thus,
perf_stat__update_shadow_stats() now saves scaled values of
clock events in msecs, instead of original nsecs. But while
calculating values of shadow stats we still consider clock
event values in nsecs. This results in a wrong shadow stat
values. Ex,

# ./perf stat -e task-clock,cycles ls
<SNIP>
2.62 msec task-clock:u # 0.624 CPUs utilized
2,501,536 cycles:u # 1250768.000 GHz

Fix this by considering clock events's saved stats in msecs:

# ./perf stat -e task-clock,cycles ls
<SNIP>
2.42 msec task-clock:u # 0.754 CPUs utilized
2,338,747 cycles:u # 1.169 GHz

Note:
The problem with this approach is, we are losing fractional part
while converting nsecs to msecs. This results in a sightly different
values of shadow stats.
