Subject[PATCH] perf: fix broken perf inject -b

perf inject -b was broken. It would not inject any build_ids
into the stream. Furthermore, it would strip samples from the

The reason was a missing initialization of the event attribute
structures. The perf_tool.tool.attr() callback was pointing to
a simple repipe. But there was no initialization of internal data
structures to keep track of events and event ids. That later caused
event id lookups to fail, and samples would get dropped.

The patch simply adds back the call to perf_event__process_attr()
to initialize the evlist structure. Build_ids are again injected.
The PID is also inject for PERF_RECORD_HEADER_BUILD_ID.
