Subject: [PATCH 3/5] perf callchain: Use global caching provided by libunwind

The libunwind provides two caching policy which are global and
per-thread.  As perf unwinds callchains in a single thread, it'd
sufficient to use global caching.

This speeds up my perf report from 14s to 7s on a ~260MB data file.
Although the output sometimes contains a slight difference (~0.01% in
terms of number of lines printed) on callchains which were not
resolved.
