SubjectRe: [PATCH v16 14/15] perf tools: Don't warn about out of order event if write_backward is used

so IIUIC they are stored from the newest to the oldest one right?

we might want to sort them back when reading the perf.data,
or mark the area in the data section and trat it specially

or just make ordered_events__queue to recognize backward
data and buffer long enough before pushing the sample
to higher level

or any other way that would make sense ;-)

however this might come as follow up update, no reason
to hold this patchset on this
