Subject: Implement lbr-as-callgraph v9

[Just a repost after a rebase]
[Even more review feedback and some bugs addressed.]
[Only port to changes in perf/core. No other changes.]
[Rebase to latest perf/core]
[Another rebase. No changes]

This patchkit implements lbr-as-callgraphs in per freport,
as an alternative way to present LBR information.

Current perf report does a histogram over the branch edges,
which is useful to look at basic blocks, but doesn't tell
you anything about the larger control flow behaviour.

This patchkit adds a new option --branch-history that
adds the branch paths to the callgraph history instead.

This allows to reason about individual branch paths leading
to specific samples.
