Subject: [PATCH v3] perf parse-events: Set exclude_guest=1 for user-space counting

Currently if we run 'perf record -e cycles:u', exclude_guest=0.

But it doesn't make sense in most cases that we request for
user-space counting but we also get the guest report.

Of course, we also need to consider perf kvm usage case that
authorized perf users on the host may only want to count guest
user space events. For example,

perf kvm --guest record -e cycles:u

When we have 'exclude_guest=1' for perf kvm usage, we may get
nothing from guest events.

To keep perf semantics consistent and clear, this patch sets
exclude_guest=1 for user-space counting but except for perf
kvm usage.

Before:
  perf record -e cycles:u ./div
  perf evlist -v
  cycles:u: ..., exclude_kernel: 1, exclude_hv: 1, ...

After:
  perf record -e cycles:u ./div
  perf evlist -v
  cycles:u: ..., exclude_kernel: 1, exclude_hv: 1,  exclude_guest: 1, ...

Before:
  perf kvm --guest record -e cycles:u -vvv

perf_event_attr:
  size                             120
  { sample_period, sample_freq }   4000
  sample_type                      IP|TID|TIME|ID|CPU|PERIOD
  read_format                      ID
  disabled                         1
  inherit                          1
  exclude_kernel                   1
  exclude_hv                       1
  freq                             1
  sample_id_all                    1

After:
  perf kvm --guest record -e cycles:u -vvv

perf_event_attr:
  size                             120
  { sample_period, sample_freq }   4000
  sample_type                      IP|TID|TIME|ID|CPU|PERIOD
  read_format                      ID
  disabled                         1
  inherit                          1
  exclude_kernel                   1
  exclude_hv                       1
  freq                             1
  sample_id_all                    1

For Before/After, exclude_guest are both 0 for perf kvm usage.

perf test 6

 v3:
 ---
 For perf kvm, if we have 'exclude_guest=1', we can't get guest
 events. So we don't set 'exclude_guest=1' for perf kvm.

 v2:
 ---
 Fix the 'perf test 6' failure.
