[PATCH v2 17/19] perf, tools, stat: Support duration_time for metrics




From: Andi Kleen <ak@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

Some of the metrics formulas (like GFLOPs) need to know how long
the measurement period is. Support an internal event called duration_time, which
reports time in second. It maps to the dummy event, but is
special cased for statistics to report the walltime duration.

So far it is not printed, but only used internally for metrics.
