perf: Add pipe-specific header read/write and event processing code
This patch makes several changes to allow the perf event stream to be sent and received over a pipe: - adds pipe-specific versions of the header read/write code - adds pipe-specific version of the event processing code - adds a range of event types to be used for header or other pseudo events, above the range used by the kernel - checks the return value of event handlers, which they can use to skip over large events during event processing rather than actually reading them into event objects. - unifies the multiple do_read() functions and updates its users. Note that none of these changes affect the existing perf data file format or processing - this code only comes into play if perf output is sent to stdout (or is read from stdin).
