Subject: [PATCH v2 6/8] perf mmap: Fix perf backward recording

perf record backward recording doesn't work as we expected: it never
overwrite when ring buffer full.

Test:

(Run a busy printing task background like this:

 while True:
     print 123

send SIGUSR2 to perf to capture snapshot.)

 # ./perf record --overwrite -e raw_syscalls:sys_enter -e raw_syscalls:sys_exit --exclude-perf -a --switch-output

           python  2545 [000] 12449.310800:  raw_syscalls:sys_exit: NR 1 = 4

Timestamps are never change, but my background task is a dead loop, can
easily overwhelme the ring buffer.

This patch fix it by force unsetting PROT_WRITE for backward ring
buffer, so all backward ring buffer become overwrite ring buffer.

Test result:
