Subject[PATCH -tip v4 1/7] perf: new subcommand perf branch record
Date
Introduce the easy way to record the bts log, 'perf branch record'.
This command records the bts log while the specified command is executing,
and save to the file "perf.data"

Usage:
perf branch record <tracee command>

Example:
# perf branch record ls -l
(ls -l outputs)
[ perf record: Woken up 1 times to write data ]
[ perf record: Captured and wrote 0.007 MB perf.data (~320 samples) ]
# ls
perf.data

Changes in V3:
- rename to 'perf branch'

Changes in V2:
- Update to the latest -tip tree
- add bts explanation to the subcommand list
