[PATCH 3/8] perf record: Add --block option




Adding --block option to allow record command set block
bool in struct perf_event_attr for event, like:

  # perf record -e raw_syscalls:sys_enter --block ls
  # perf record -e raw_syscalls:sys_enter --block -p ...

It's allowed only for syscall tracepoint events
attached to process.
