Subject: [PATCH V6 09/17] perf, x86: Save/resotre LBR stack during context switch

When the LBR call stack is enabled, it is necessary to save/restore
the LBR stack on context switch. The solution is saving/restoring
the LBR stack to/from task's perf event context.

The LBR stack is saved/restored only when there are events that use
the LBR call stack. If no event uses LBR call stack, the LBR stack
is reset when task is scheduled in.
