[PATCH v7 34/37] tracing: Add a clock attribute for hist triggers




The default clock if timestamps are used in a histogram is "global".
If timestamps aren't used, the clock is irrelevant.

Use the "clock=" param only if you want to override the default
"global" clock for a histogram with timestamps.

+A note on inter-event timestamps: If common_timestamp is used in a
+histogram, the trace buffer is automatically switched over to using
+absolute timestamps and the "global" trace clock, in order to avoid
+bogus timestamp differences with other clocks that aren't coherent
+across CPUs.  This can be overridden by specifying one of the other
+trace clocks instead, using the "clock=XXX" hist trigger attribute,
+where XXX is any of the clocks listed in the tracing/trace_clock
+pseudo-file.
