Subject: [PATCH] perf tools: Fix swap for samples with raw data

When we detect different endianity we swap event before
processing. It's tricky for samples because we have no
idea what's inside. We treat it as an array of u64s,
swap them and later on we swap back parts which are
different.

We mangle this way also the tracepoint raw data, which
ends up in report showing wrong data:

  1.95%  comm=Q^B pid=29285 prio=16777216 target_cpu=000
  1.67%  comm=l^B pid=0 prio=16777216 target_cpu=000

Luckily the traceevent library handles the endianity by
itself (thank you Steven!), so we can pass the RAW data
directly in the other endianity.

  2.51%  comm=beah-rhts-task pid=1175 prio=120 target_cpu=002
  2.23%  comm=kworker/0:0 pid=11566 prio=120 target_cpu=000

The fix is basically to swap back the raw data if different
endianity is detected.
