Without this patch, the last output doesn't have timestamp appended if
--timestamp-filename is not explicitly provided. For example:

  # perf record -a --switch-output &
  [1] 11224
  # kill -s SIGUSR2 11224
  [ perf record: dump data: Woken up 1 times ]
  # [ perf record: Dump perf.data.2015122622372823 ]

  # fg
  perf record -a --switch-output
  ^C[ perf record: Woken up 1 times to write data ]
  [ perf record: Captured and wrote 0.027 MB perf.data (540 samples) ]

  # ls -l
  total 836
  -rw------- 1 root root  33256 Dec 26 22:37 perf.data   <---- *Odd*
  -rw------- 1 root root 817156 Dec 26 22:37 perf.data.2015122622372823
