Subject: [PATCH 19/19] perf tools: Allow out of order messages in forced flush

In forced flush (OE_FLUSH__HALF) we break the rules of the
flush timestamp via PERF_RECORD_FINISHED_ROUND event, so
we could get out of order event.

Do not force error in this case plus changing the
output warning to use WARN_ONCE.
