'perf trace' reports the segmentation fault as below on Arm64:

  # perf trace -e string -e augmented_raw_syscalls.c
  LLVM: dumping tools/perf/examples/bpf/augmented_raw_syscalls.o
  perf: Segmentation fault

  Segmentation fault

This issue is introduced by commit 30a910d7d3e0 ("perf trace:
Preallocate the syscall table"), it allocates trace->syscalls.table[]
array and the element count is 'trace->sctbl->syscalls.nr_entries'; but
on Arm64, the system call number is not continuously used; e.g. the
syscall maximum id is 436 but the real entries is only 281.

So the table is allocated with 'nr_entries' as the element count, but it
accesses the table with the syscall id, which might be out of the bound
of the array and cause the segmentation fault.

This patch allocates trace->syscalls.table[] with the element count is
'trace->sctbl->syscalls.max_id + 1', this allows any id to access the
table without out of the bound.
