Subject[RFC] perf report/top with callchain fixes improvements

These patches try to address inconsistencies in the navigation
in the 'perf report' and 'perf top' when callchains are present.

Linus reported that when pressing ENTER with callchains enabled
it no longer shows the popup menu, instead it toggles the callchains,
which is surprising and rather annoying.

So this patchset makes it consistent by presenting the popup
menu when ENTER is pressed and callchains are present, and then an
extra menu entry, associated with the new '+' toggle is added and
appears proeminently in the popup menu, together with suggestions about
using 'e' to toogle all the callchains for the top level entry,

Other changes in this patchkit allows for using those suggested
hotkeys directly from the popup menu and add a new 'k' hotkey to zoom
straight into the main kernel map. Pressing it again works just like
using the popup menu via ENTER + "Zoom out of the kernel" or using ESC
to Zoom out from the last filtering operation.

While working on this I noticed some other oddities like in
the default --children mode where the Annotation popup option appeared
even for entries where no samples were taken, i.e. something that
appeared just on some callchain, suppressing the Annotation popup entry
for those cases. If the user insists in using the 'a' hotkey on such an
entry, a popup warning is showed.

Also a fix for kernel maps for ranges that seldom appear in
samples, like "[kernel.vmlinux].init.text", that didn't a pointer back
to the kernel maps data structure and thus was causing an assertion
falure were found and fix, please test, available at:
