perf tools: Add support for weight v7 (modified)
perf record has a new option -W that enables weightened sampling. Add sorting support in top/report for the average weight per sample and the total weight sum. This allows to both compare relative cost per event and the total cost over the measurement period. Add the necessary glue to perf report, record and the library. v2: Merge with new hist refactoring. v3: Fix manpage. Remove value check. Rename global_weight to weight and weight to local_weight. v4: Readd sort keys to manpage v5: Move weight to end v6: Move weight to template v7: Rename weight key. Original patch from Andi modified by Stephane Eranian <> to include ONLY the weight supporting code and apply to pristine 3.8.0-rc4.
