perf mmap: Recalculate size for overwrite mode

In perf_mmap__push(), the 'size' need to be recalculated, otherwise the
invalid data might be pushed to the record in overwrite mode.

The issue is introduced by commit 7fb4b407a124 ("perf mmap: Don't
discard prev in backward mode").

When the ring buffer is full in overwrite mode, backward_rb_find_range()
will be called to recalculate the 'start' and 'end'. The 'size' needs to
be recalculated accordingly.

Unconditionally recalculate the 'size', not just for full ring buffer in
overwrite mode. Because:

- There is no harmful to recalculate the 'size' for other cases.
- The code of calculating 'start' and 'end' will be factored out later.
The new function does not need to return 'size'.
