Subject[PATCH] perf report: fix bug in raw smple parsing

In perf_event__parse_sample(), the array variable was not incremented
by the amount of data used by the raw_data. That was okay until
we added PERF_SAMPLE_BRANCH_STACK which depends on the array variable
pointing to the beginning of the branch stack data. But that was not
the case if branch stack was combined with raw mode sampling. That led
to bogus branch stack addresses and count.

The bug would show up with:
$ perf record -R -b foo

This patch fixes the problem by correctly moving the array pointer
forward for RAW samples.
