perf record: Enable counters only when kernel is execing subcommand
'perf record' starts counters before subcommand is execed, so the statistics is not precise because it includes data of some preparation steps. I fix it with the patch. In addition, change the condition to fork/exec subcommand. If there is a subcommand parameter, perf always fork/exec it. The usage example is: # perf record -f -a sleep 10 So this command could collect statistics for 10 seconds precisely. User still could stop it by CTRL+C. Without the new capability, user could only input CTRL+C to stop it without precise time clock.
