[PATCH v6 7/7] perf report: Show branch type in callchain entry




Show branch type in callchain entry. The branch type is printed
with other LBR information (such as cycles/abort/...).

For example:
perf report --branch-history --stdio --no-children

--24.21%--main div.c:42 (RET CROSS_2M cycles:2)
          compute_flag div.c:28 (cycles:2)
          compute_flag div.c:27 (RET CROSS_2M cycles:1)
          rand rand.c:28 (cycles:1)
          rand rand.c:28 (RET CROSS_2M cycles:1)
          __random random.c:298 (cycles:1)
          __random random.c:297 (JCC backward CROSS_2M cycles:1)
          __random random.c:295 (cycles:1)
          __random random.c:295 (JCC backward CROSS_2M cycles:1)
          __random random.c:295 (cycles:1)
          __random random.c:295 (RET CROSS_2M cycles:9)

Change log
----------

v6: Remove the branch_type_str() since it's moved to branch.c.

v5: Rewrite the branch info print code in util/callchain.c.

v4: Comparing to previous version, the major changes are:

Since we have to compute the JCC forward/JCC backward and cross
page checking in user space by from and to addresses, while each
callchain entry only contains one ip (either from or to), so
this patch will append a branch from address to the callchain
entry which just contains the to ip.
