Subject: [PATCH 09/11] coresight: etm-perf: Truncate the perf record if handle has no space

While starting off the etm event, just abort and truncate the perf record
if the perf handle as no space left. This avoids configuring both source
and sink devices in case the data cannot be consumed in perf.
