Subject: [PATCH] perf bench: Fix bench/sched-pipe.c to wait child process

Fixed bench/sched-pipe.c to avoid the below case
notified by Ingo Molnar,

---

$ ./perf bench sched pipe
(executing 1000000 pipe operations between two tasks)

	Total time:4.898 sec
$ 		4.898586 usecs/op
		204140 ops/sec

the shell prompt came back before the usecs/op and ops/sec line was
printed. Process teardown race, lack of wait() or so?

---

This caused by lack of calling waitpid() by parent process,
so I added it.
