[PATCH 29/36] perf mmap: Remove overwrite and check_messup from mmap read




From: Wang Nan <wangnan0@xxxxxxxxxx>

All perf_mmap__read_forward() read from read-write ring buffer, so no
need check_messup. Reading from backward ring buffer doesn't require
check_messup because it never mess up. Cleanup arguments lists.
