perf map: Synthesize maps only for thread group leader

Threads share map_groups, all map events are merged into it.

Thus we could send mmaps only for thread group leader.  Otherwise it
took ages to attach and record something from processes with many vmas
and threads.

Thread group leader could be already dead, but it seems perf cannot
handle this case anyway.

Testing dummy:

  #include <stdio.h>
  #include <stdlib.h>
  #include <sys/mman.h>
  #include <pthread.h>
  #include <unistd.h>

  void *thread(void *arg) {
          pause();
  }

  int main(int argc, char **argv) {
        int threads = 10000;
        int vmas = 50000;
        pthread_t th;
        for (int i = 0; i < threads; i++)
                pthread_create(&th, NULL, thread, NULL);
        for (int i = 0; i < vmas; i++)
                mmap(NULL, 4096, (i & 1) ? PROT_READ : PROT_WRITE,
                     MAP_PRIVATE | MAP_ANONYMOUS | MAP_NORESERVE, -1, 0);
        sleep(60);
        return 0;
  }

Comment by Jiri Olsa:

We actualy synthesize the group leader (if we found one) for the thread
even if it's not present in the thread_map, so the process maps are
always in data.
