perf script: Allow specifying the files to process guest samples

The 'perf kvm' command set up things so that we can record, report, top,
etc, but not 'script', so make 'perf script' be able to process samples
by allowing to pass guest kallsyms, vmlinux, modules, etc, and if at
least one of those is provided, set perf_guest to true so that guest
samples get properly resolved.

Testing it:

# perf kvm --guest --guestkallsyms /wb/rhel6.kallsyms --guestmodules /wb/rhel6.modules record -e cycles:Gk
^C[ perf record: Woken up 7 times to write data ]
[ perf record: Captured and wrote 3.602 MB perf.data.guest (10492 samples) ]

#
# perf evlist -i perf.data.guest
cycles:Gk
# perf evlist -v -i perf.data.guest
cycles:Gk: size: 112, { sample_period, sample_freq }: 4000, sample_type: IP|TID|TIME|CPU|PERIOD, read_format: ID, disabled: 1, inherit: 1, exclude_user: 1, exclude_hv: 1, mmap: 1, comm: 1, freq: 1, task: 1, sample_id_all: 1, exclude_host: 1, mmap2: 1, comm_exec: 1, ksymbol: 1, bpf_event: 1
#
# perf kvm --guestkallsyms /wb/rhel6.kallsyms --guestmodules /wb/rhel6.modules report --stdio -s sym | head -30
# To display the perf.data header info, please use --header/--header-only options.

#

Then, when trying to use perf script to generate a python script and
then process the events after adding a python hook for non-tracepoint
events:

# perf script -i perf.data.guest -g python
generated Python script: perf-script.py
# vim perf-script.py
# tail -2 perf-script.py
def process_event(param_dict):
print(param_dict["symbol"])
#
# perf script -i perf.data.guest -s perf-script.py | head
in trace_begin

vmx_vmexit
vmx_vmexit
vmx_vmexit
vmx_vmexit
vmx_vmexit
vmx_vmexit
vmx_vmexit
vmx_vmexit
231
#

We'd see just the vmx_vmexit, i.e. the samples from the guest don't show
up.

After this patch:

# perf script --guestkallsyms /wb/rhel6.kallsyms --guestmodules /wb/rhel6.modules -i perf.data.guest -s perf-script.py 2> /dev/null | head -30

Jiri Olsa noticed we need to set 'perf_guest' to true if we want to
process guest samples and I made it be set if one of the guest files
settings get set via the command line options added in this patch, that
match those present in the 'perf kvm' command.

We probably want to have 'perf record', 'perf report' etc to notice that
there are guest samples and do the right thing, which is to look for
files with some suffix that make it be associated with the guest used to
collect the samples, i.e. if a vmlinux file is passed, we can get the
build-id from it, if not some other identifier or simply looking for
"kallsyms.guest", for instance, in the current directory.
