The updated patch records the CPU only in the system_wide mode.

Updated changelog as well.

Subject: [PATCH] Implement --sort cpu

In a shared multi-core environment, users want to analyze why their
program was slow. In particular, if the code ran slower only on
certain CPUs due to interference from other programs or kernel
threads, the user should be able to notice that.

Sample usage:

perf record -f -a -- sleep 3
perf report --sort cpu,comm

Workload:

program is running on 16 CPUs
Experiencing interference from an antagonist only on 4 CPUs.

Samples: 106218177676 cycles

Overhead CPU Command
........ ... ...............

6.25% 2 program
6.24% 6 program
6.24% 11 program
6.24% 5 program
6.24% 9 program
6.24% 10 program
6.23% 15 program
6.23% 7 program
6.23% 3 program
6.23% 14 program
6.22% 1 program
6.20% 13 program
3.17% 12 program
3.15% 8 program
3.14% 0 program
3.13% 4 program
3.11% 4 antagonist
3.11% 0 antagonist
3.10% 8 antagonist
3.07% 12 antagonist
