perf trace: Allow configuring default for perf_event_attr.inherit

I.f. if children should inherit the parent perf_event configuration,
i.e. if we should trace children as well or just the parent.

The default is to follow children, to disable this and have a behaviour
similar to strace, set this config option or use the --no_inherit 'perf
trace' option.

E.g.:

Default:

# perf config trace.no_inherit
# trace -e clone,*sleep time sleep 1
0.000 time/21107 clone(clone_flags: CHILD_CLEARTID|CHILD_SETTID|0x11, newsp: 0, child_tidptr: 0x7f7b8f9ae810) = 21108 (time)
? time/21108 ... [continued]: clone()
0.691 sleep/21108 nanosleep(rqtp: 0x7ffed01d0540, rmtp: 0 ) = 0
0.00user 0.00system 0:01.00elapsed 0%CPU (0avgtext+0avgdata 1988maxresident)k
0inputs+0outputs (0major+76minor)pagefaults 0swaps
#

Disable it:

# trace -e clone,*sleep time sleep 1
0.000 clone(clone_flags: CHILD_CLEARTID|CHILD_SETTID|0x11, newsp: 0, child_tidptr: 0x7ff41e100810) = 21414 (time)
0.00user 0.00system 0:01.00elapsed 0%CPU (0avgtext+0avgdata 1964maxresident)k
0inputs+0outputs (0major+76minor)pagefaults 0swaps
#

Notice that since there is just one thread, the "comm/TID" column is
suppressed.
