[PATCH v8 07/12] perf record: implement compression for serial trace streaming




Compression is implemented using the functions from zstd.c. As the memory
to operate on the compression uses mmap->data buffer. If Zstd streaming
compression API fails for some reason the data to be compressed are just
copied into the memory buffers using plain memcpy().

Compressed trace frame consists of an array of PERF_RECORD_COMPRESSED
records. Each element of the array is not longer that PERF_SAMPLE_MAX_SIZE
and consists of perf_event_header followed by the compressed chunk
that is decompressed on the loading stage.
