Subject: [PATCH 1/6] perf tools: Synthetize the targeted process

Don't forget to also synthetize the targeted process from perf record
or we'll miss its dso in the events and then we won't be able to deal
with its build-id.

We are missing it because it is created after the existing synthetized
tasks but before the counters are enabled and can send its mapping
event.
