Subject: [PATCH] perf record: Add support to collect callchains from kernel or user space only.

From: yuzhoujian <yuzhoujian@...ichuxing.com>

One can just record callchains in the kernel or user space with
this new options. We can use it together with "--all-kernel" options.
This two options is used just like print_stack(sys) or print_ustack(usr)
for systemtap.

Show below is the usage of this new option combined with "--all-kernel"
options.
	1. Configure all used events to run in kernel space and just
collect kernel callchains.
	$ perf record -a -g --all-kernel --kernel-callchains
	2. Configure all used events to run in kernel space and just
collect user callchains.
	$ perf record -a -g --all-kernel --user-callchains
