Subject: [PATCH v3 2/4] perf record: Prevent override of attr->sample_period
 for libpfm4 events

From: Stephane Eranian <eranian@...gle.com>

Before:
$ perf record -c 10000 --pfm-events=cycles:period=77777

Would yield a cycles event with period=10000, instead of 77777.

This was due to an ordering issue between libpfm4 parsing
the event string and perf record initializing the event.

This patch fixes the problem by preventing override for
events with attr->sample_period != 0 by the time
perf_evsel__config() is invoked. This seems to have been the
intent of the author.
