I verified this patch and I can confirm the physical address can be
dumped successfully.

I have a more general question, seems to me, we need to change the
macro PERF_SAMPLE_MASK in the file util/event.h as below, so
here doesn't need to 'or' the flag PERF_SAMPLE_PHYS_ADDR anymore.

@Arnaldo, @Jiri, could you confirm if this is the right way to move
forward?  I am not sure why PERF_SAMPLE_MASK doesn't contain the bit
PERF_SAMPLE_PHYS_ADDR in current code.
