Subject[PATCH v5 3/3] perf config: Allow creating empty config set for config file autogeneration
When there isn't a config file (e.g. ~/.perfconfig)
or it has nothing, the config set wasn't created.
If the config set not exists, a config file can't be autogenerated.

So allow creating a empty config set in the above case,
then we can support the config file autogeneration.


$ rm -f ~/.perfconfig
$ perf config --user report.children=false

$ cat ~/.perfconfig
cat: /root/.perfconfig: No such file or directory

But I think it should work even if there isn't a config file.


$ rm -f ~/.perfconfig
$ perf config --user report.children=false

$ cat ~/.perfconfig
# this file is auto-generated.
children = false

As a result, if perf_config_set__init() is failed,
it seems that the config set isn't freed. But it isn't a problem.
Because the config set will be freed by perf_config_set__delete()
at the end of cmd_config().
