I agree with single threaded as default setting, also I think we need both
functions, perf_set_multihreaded and perf_set_singlethreaded.
Perf tools probably be half single threaded and half multithreaded.
E.g. the perf top optimization. Only the events synthesize codes are
multithreaded. So we have to set multithreaded first, then change it
to single threaded.

Thanks,
