Subject: [PATCH v2] perf annotate/report: Remove hist__account_cycles from callback

The hist__account_cycles is executed when the hist_iter__branch_callback
is called. But it looks it's not necessary. In hist__account_cycles, it
already walks on all branch entries.

This patch moves the hist__account_cycles out of callback, now the data
processing is much faster than before.

Previous code has an issue that the ch[offset].num++
(in __symbol__account_cycles) is executed repeatedly since
hist__account_cycles is called in each hist_iter__branch_callback,
so the counting of ch[offset].num is not correct (too big).
With this patch, the issue is fixed. And we don't need the code of
"ch->reset >= ch->num / 2" to check if there are too many overlaps
(in annotation__count_and_fill), otherwise some data would be
hidden.

Now, we can try, for example:

perf record -b ...
perf annotate or perf report -s symbol

The before/after output should be no change.

 v2:
 ---
 1. Cover the similar perf report
 2. Remove the checking code "ch->reset >= ch->num / 2"
