Subject: [PATCH] perf stat: Fix segfault for event group in repeat mode

Numfor Mbiziwo-Tiapo reported segfault on stat of event
group in repeat mode:

  # perf stat -e '{cycles,instructions}' -r 10 ls

It's caused by memory corruption due to not cleaned
evsel's id array and index, which needs to be rebuilt
in every stat iteration. Currently the ids index grows,
while the array (which is also not freed) has the same
size.

Fixing this by releasing id array and zeroing ids index
in perf_evsel__close function.

We also need to keep the evsel_list alive for stat
record (which is disabled in repeat mode).
