Subject[PATCH RESEND 1/2] perf evlist: Return first evsel for non-sample event on old kernel
On old kernels that don't support sample_id_all feature,
perf_evlist__id2evsel() returns NULL for non-sampling events.
This breaks perf top when multiple events are given on command
line. Fix it by using first evsel in the evlist. This will also
prevent getting the same (potential) problem in such new tool/
old kernel combo.
