perf: Convert perf tracing data into a tracing_data event
Bypasses the tracing_data perf header code and replaces it with a synthesized event and processing function that accomplishes the same thing, used when reading/writing perf data to/from a pipe. The tracing data is pretty large, and this patch doesn't attempt to break it down into component events. The tracing_data event itself doesn't actually contain the tracing data, rather it arranges for the event processing code to skip over it after it's read, using the skip return value added to the event processing loop in a previous patch.
