Subject[PATCH 3/4] perf inject: Fix output from a pipe to a file
Date
Sometimes it needs to save the perf inject data to a file for
debugging. But normally it assumes the same format for input and
output, so the end result cannot be used due to a broken format.

# perf record -a -o - sleep 1 | perf inject -b -o my.data

# perf report -i my.data --stdio
0x208 [0]: failed to process type: 0 [Invalid argument]
Error:
failed to process sample
# To display the perf.data header info, please use --header/--header-only options.
#

In this case, it thought the data has a regular file header since the
output is not a pipe. But actually it doesn't have one and has a pipe
file header. At the end of the session, it tries to rewrite the
regular file header with updated features and it overwrites the data
just follows the pipe header.

Fix it by checking either the input and the output is a pipe.
