Right, we need to have object attributes, and then pass them to
perf_session__new, so that it creates the counters, etc, instead of
having top, record, etc doing it in ad hoc ways.

I'll try to attack this soon, after tinishing the sample_type_id_all,
that in the kernel is per attribute, but in the tooling side suffers
from the one sample_type per session, not per attribute problem too.
