perf trace: Add possibility to switch off syscall events

Currently, we may either trace syscalls or syscalls+pagefaults.

We'd like to be able to trace *only* pagefaults and this commit
implements this feature.

Example:

  [root@zoo /]# echo 1 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches ; trace --no-syscalls -F -p `pidof xchat`
       0.000 ( 0.000 ms): xchat/4574 majfault [g_unichar_get_script+0x11] => /usr/lib64/libglib-2.0.so.0.3800.2@...403b (x.)
       0.202 ( 0.000 ms): xchat/4574 majfault [_cairo_hash_table_lookup+0x53] => 0x2280ff0 (?.)
      20.854 ( 0.000 ms): xchat/4574 majfault [gdk_cairo_set_source_pixbuf+0x110] => /usr/bin/xchat@...da1f (x.)
    1022.000 ( 0.000 ms): xchat/4574 majfault [__memcpy_sse2_unaligned+0x29] => 0x7ff5a8ca0400 (?.)
  ^C[root@zoo /]#

Below we can see malloc calls, 'trace' reading symbol tables in libraries to
resolve symbols, etc.

  [root@zoo /]# echo 1 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches ; trace --no-syscalls -F all --cpu 1 sleep 10
