perf script: Support relative time

When comparing time stamps in 'perf script' traces it can be annoying to
work with the full perf time stamps.

Add a --reltime option that displays time stamps relative to the trace
start to make it easier to read the traces.

Note: not currently supported for --time. Report an error in this
case.

Before:

  % perf script
      swapper 0 [000] 245402.891216:    1 cycles:ppp: ffffffffa0068814 native_write_msr+0x4 ([kernel.kallsyms])
      swapper 0 [000] 245402.891223:    1 cycles:ppp: ffffffffa0068814 native_write_msr+0x4 ([kernel.kallsyms])
      swapper 0 [000] 245402.891227:    5 cycles:ppp: ffffffffa0068814 native_write_msr+0x4 ([kernel.kallsyms])
      swapper 0 [000] 245402.891231:   41 cycles:ppp: ffffffffa0068816 native_write_msr+0x6 ([kernel.kallsyms])
      swapper 0 [000] 245402.891235:  355 cycles:ppp: ffffffffa000dd51 intel_bts_enable_local+0x21 ([kernel.kallsyms])
      swapper 0 [000] 245402.891239: 3084 cycles:ppp: ffffffffa0a0150a end_repeat_nmi+0x48 ([kernel.kallsyms])

After:

  % perf script --reltime

      swapper 0 [000]     0.000000:    1 cycles:ppp: ffffffffa0068814 native_write_msr+0x4 ([kernel.kallsyms])
      swapper 0 [000]     0.000006:    1 cycles:ppp: ffffffffa0068814 native_write_msr+0x4 ([kernel.kallsyms])
      swapper 0 [000]     0.000010:    5 cycles:ppp: ffffffffa0068814 native_write_msr+0x4 ([kernel.kallsyms])
      swapper 0 [000]     0.000014:   41 cycles:ppp: ffffffffa0068816 native_write_msr+0x6 ([kernel.kallsyms])
      swapper 0 [000]     0.000018:  355 cycles:ppp: ffffffffa000dd51 intel_bts_enable_local+0x21 ([kernel.kallsyms])
      swapper 0 [000]     0.000022: 3084 cycles:ppp: ffffffffa0a0150a end_repeat_nmi+0x48 ([kernel.kallsyms])

Committer notes:

Do not use 'time' as the name of a variable, as this breaks the build on
older glibcs:

  cc1: warnings being treated as errors
  builtin-script.c: In function 'perf_sample__fprintf_start':
  builtin-script.c:691: warning: declaration of 'time' shadows a global declaration
  /usr/include/time.h:187: warning: shadowed declaration is here
