Subject[PATCH v1 1/6] perf record: Record the first sample time and last sample time to perf file header
Date
perf report/script/... have a --time option to limit the time range
of output. That's very useful to slice large traces, e.g. when processing
the output of perf script for some analysis.

But right now --time only supports absolute time. Also there is no fast
way to get the start/end times of a given trace except for looking at it.
This makes it hard to e.g. only decode the first half of the trace, which
is useful for parallelization of scripts

Another problem is that perf records are variable size and there is no
synchronization mechanism. So the only way to find the last sample reliably
would be to walk all samples. But we want to avoid that in perf report/...
because it is already quite expensive. That is why storing the first sample
time and last sample time in perf record is better.

In perf record, it's walked on all samples yet. So it's very easy to get
the first/last samples and save the times in perf file header.

In later, perf record/script will fetch the time from perf file header.
