Wang Nan July 11, 2016, 6:51 a.m.
Create an auxiliary evlist for overwritable events.

Before mmap, build this evlist and set 'overwrite' and 'backward'
attribute. Since perf_evlist__mmap_ex() only maps events when
evsel->overwrite matches evlist's corresponding attributes, with
these two evlists an event goes to either rec->evlist or
rec->overwrite_evlist.
