Subject: Revert "perf record: Intercept all events"

ONLY FOR TEST USE!!!

This reverts commit f5a2c3dce03621b55f84496f58adc2d1a87ca16f.

This patch is required for making "perf lock rec" work.
The commit f5a2c3dce0 changes write_event() of builtin-record.c .
And changed write_event() sometimes doesn't stop with perf lock rec.

I'm researching what makes write_event() loop infinity,
and noticed that there are some events with event_t->header.size == 0.
But the detail of the problem,
like kind of these events, isn't clear...

*** I cannot sing this! ***
