That way the system wide tracing does not work. perf_evlist__open uses
a non-NULL thread mapping and so it only traces the events generated
by the daemon itself.

perf top uses a similar approach but uses a lot of code in machine.c
(machine__synthesize_threads) and util/event.c
(perf_event__synthesize_threads) to synthesize the threads etc., which
we want to avoid in the minimalistic approach of rasd.

Maybe I missed something about the system wide tracing, any suggestion
is welcome.

Thanks for looking!

Jean
