The children/cumulate stuff is enabled if a combined sample type
contains PERF_SAMPLE_CALLCHAIN and works only a sample actually contains
callchain.

So I guess if some have it and some don't, events don't have callchain
just prints real entries/samples with same children overhead value.

Thanks,
Namhyung
