perf/trace: Add ability to set a target task for events
A few events are interesting not only for a current task. For example, sched_stat_* events are interesting for a task which wakes up. For this reason, it will be good if such events will be delivered to a target task too. Now a target task can be set by using __perf_task(). The original idea and a draft patch belongs to Peter Zijlstra. I need these events for profiling sleep times. sched_switch is used for getting callchains and sched_stat_* is used for getting time periods. These events are combined in user space, then it can be analyzed by perf tools.
