perf tools: Fix bug in raw sample parsing
In perf_event__parse_sample(), the array variable was not incremented by the amount of data used by the raw_data. That was okay until we added PERF_SAMPLE_BRANCH_STACK which depends on the array variable pointing to the beginning of the branch stack data. But that was not the case if branch stack was combined with raw mode sampling. That led to bogus branch stack addresses and count. The bug would show up with: $ perf record -R -b foo This patch fixes the problem by correctly moving the array pointer forward for RAW samples.
