[PATCH perf/urgent] perf top: Always sample time




Bastian reported broken perf top -p PID command, it won't
display any data.

The problem is that for -p option we monitor single thread,
so we don't enable time in samples, because it's not needed.

However since commit 16c66bc167cc we use ordered queues to
stash data plus later commits added logic for dropping samples
in case there's big load and we don't keep up. All this needs
timestamp for sample. Enabling it unconditionally for perf top.

Fixes: 16c66bc167cc ("perf top: Add processing thread")
