perf tools: Add support for PERF_RECORD_AUX
Add support for the PERF_RECORD_AUX event type. PERF_RECORD_AUX is a new kernel event that records when new data lands in the AUX buffer. Currently it is assumed that AUX data follows the same ring buffer conventions used by the perf events buffer, and consequently the AUX event is not processed during recording. It is processed during session processing so that the information in the 'flags' member is made available. The format of PERF_RECORD_AUX is outlined in the linux/perf_events.h header file. The 'flags' are also enumerated. Intel PT and Intel BTS use the flag named PERF_AUX_FLAG_TRUNCATED to determine if data has been lost because the buffer became full as perf was not able to empty it fast enough.
