Subject: [PATCH V3 01/12] perf evlist: remove stale mmap read for backward

From: Kan Liang <kan.liang@...el.com>

perf_evlist__mmap_read_catchup and perf_evlist__mmap_read_backward are
only for overwrite mode.
But they read the evlist->mmap buffer which is for non-overwrite mode.

It did not bring any serious problem yet, because there is no one use
it.

Remove the unused interfaces.
