If write_backward attribute is set, records are written into kernel
ring buffer from end to beginning, but read from beginning to end.
To avoid 'XX out of order events recorded' warning message (timestamps
of records is in reverse order when using write_backward), suppress the
warning message if write_backward is selected by at lease one event.

Result:

Before this patch:
  # perf record -m 1 -e raw_syscalls:sys_exit/overwrite/ \
                     -e raw_syscalls:sys_enter \
                     dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/null count=300
  300+0 records in
  300+0 records out
  153600 bytes (154 kB) copied, 0.000601617 s, 255 MB/s
  [ perf record: Woken up 5 times to write data ]
  Warning:
  40 out of order events recorded.
  [ perf record: Captured and wrote 0.096 MB perf.data (696 samples) ]

After this patch:
  # perf record -m 1 -e raw_syscalls:sys_exit/overwrite/ \
                     -e raw_syscalls:sys_enter \
                     dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/null count=300
  300+0 records in
  300+0 records out
  153600 bytes (154 kB) copied, 0.000644873 s, 238 MB/s
  [ perf record: Woken up 5 times to write data ]
  [ perf record: Captured and wrote 0.096 MB perf.data (696 samples) ]
