perf report: Tag branch type/flag on "to" and tag cycles on "from"

Current --branch-history LBR annotation displays confused data. For
example, each cycles report is duplicated on both "from" and "to"
entries.

For example:

perf report --branch-history --no-children --stdio

--2.32%--main div.c:39 (COND_BWD CROSS_2M predicted:49.7% cycles:1)
main div.c:44 (predicted:49.7% cycles:1)
main div.c:42 (RET CROSS_2M cycles:2)
compute_flag div.c:28 (cycles:2)
compute_flag div.c:27 (RET CROSS_2M cycles:1)
rand rand.c:28 (cycles:1)
rand rand.c:28 (RET CROSS_2M cycles:1)
__random random.c:298 (cycles:1)
__random random.c:297 (COND_BWD CROSS_2M cycles:1)
__random random.c:295 (cycles:1)
__random random.c:295 (COND_BWD CROSS_2M cycles:1)
__random random.c:295 (cycles:1)
__random random.c:295 (RET CROSS_2M cycles:9)

The cycles should be tagged only on the "from". It's for the code block
that ends with "from", not for "to".

Another issue is the "predicted:49.7%" is duplicated too (tag on both
"from" and "to").

This patch tags the branch type/flag on "to" and tag the cycles on
"from".

For example:

--2.32%--main div.c:39 (COND_BWD CROSS_2M predicted:49.7%)
main div.c:44 (cycles:1)
main div.c:42 (RET CROSS_2M)
compute_flag div.c:28 (cycles:2)
compute_flag div.c:27 (RET CROSS_2M)
rand rand.c:28 (cycles:1)
rand rand.c:28 (RET CROSS_2M)
__random random.c:298 (cycles:1)
__random random.c:297 (COND_BWD CROSS_2M)
__random random.c:295 (cycles:1)
__random random.c:295 (COND_BWD CROSS_2M)
__random random.c:295 (cycles:1)
__random random.c:295 (RET CROSS_2M)
|
--2.23%--__random_r random_r.c:392 (cycles:9)

In this example, The "main div.c:39 (COND_BWD CROSS_2M predicted:49.7%)"
is "to" of branch and "main div.c:44 (cycles:1)" is "from" of branch.
It should be easier for understanding than before.
