During code review I found a bug in perf_output_sample(). A fix is
below.

Subject: [PATCH] perf: fix raw sample size if no sampling data is attached

The header size of a raw sample is not included in the total size of a
raw data sample. Thus, if no data is attached the size must be
null. In this case a buffer overflow may occur when copying the
sampling data.
