overwrite_evt_state is introduced to reflect the state of overwritable
ring buffers. It is a state machine with following states:

   .________________(forbid)_____________.
   |                                     V
 RUNNING --(1)--> DATA_PENDING --(2)--> EMPTY
   ^  ^              |   ^               |
   |  |__(forbid)____/   |___(forbid)___/|
   |                                     |
    \_________________(3)_______________/

 RUNNING      : Overwritable ring buffers are recording
 DATA_PENDING : We are required to collect overwritable ring buffers
 EMPTY        : We have collected data from those ring buffers.

 (1): Pause ring buffers for reading
 (2): Read from ring buffers
 (3): Resume ring buffers for recording

We can't avoid this complexity. Since we deliberately drop records from
overwritable ring buffer, there's no way for us to check remaining from
ring buffer itself (by checking head and old pointers). Therefore, we
need DATA_PENDING and EMPTY state to help us recording what we have done
to the ring buffer.

With the above state machine, this patch improves record__mmap_read_all(),
read from overwritable ring buffer when DATA_PENDING state is observed.
