That's a separate issue, which Arjan was nice enough to fix for me. He
even wrote the changelog, and used my mouse to do so ;-)

Watch.

Virgin tip pulled this morning, perf sched record sleep 1 on idle box.

perf_counter tools: make perf sched pass -F 0 to record

Commit 42e59d7d19dc4b4 introduced a sample frequency framework..
.. however it unfortunately changed how perf events get recorded,
and caused sched to miss events.

This patch causes the sched code to use -F 0 to not use the
new framework when recording sched data.
