I disagree, since the support is there, we need to have it in
hists->events_stats[PERF_RECORD_LOST_SAMPLES].

But that can be done in a follow up patch.

It just came quickly to my attention because of all the discussion about
where to store something (PERF_SAMPLE_ID via sample_type + sample_id_all)
that doesn't get used in the patch that introduces it :-)

I'll try to test this all tomorrow and will try to do the needed wiring
to hists_evsel->hists->events_stats.

All working I can push this all via my perf/core event, if PeterZ
agrees and is ok with the kernel specific bits.
