Subject: [PATCH 11/18] perf stat: Add -a as default target

From: Jiri Olsa <jolsa@...hat.com>

Boris asked for default -a option in case we monitor only uncore events.

While implementing that I thought it might be actually useful to make it
overall default.

Running 'perf stat' will now collect system wide data.

Committer note:

Testing it:

  # perf stat
  ^C
   Performance counter stats for 'system wide':

         3571.559178      cpu-clock (msec)          #    4.000 CPUs utilized
               3,346      context-switches          #    0.937 K/sec
                 277      cpu-migrations            #    0.078 K/sec
              57,271      page-faults               #    0.016 M/sec
