Subject: [PATCH v3 01/23] perf: Add data_{offset,size} to user_page

Currently, the actual perf ring buffer is one page into the mmap area,
following the user page and the userspace follows this convention. This
patch adds data_{offset,size} fields to user_page that can be used by
userspace instead for locating perf data in the mmap area. This is also
helpful when mapping existing or shared buffers if their size is not
known in advance.

Right now, it is made to follow the existing convention that

	data_offset == PAGE_SIZE and
	data_offset + data_size == mmap_size.
