[RFC PATCH v2 1/2] perf tools: Set evsel->system_wide field for global system wide recording

From: Wang Nan
Date: Mon Oct 26 2015 - 07:52:21 EST

evsel->system_wide is introduced by commit bf8e8f4b832972c76d64ab2e2837
(perf evlist: Add 'system_wide' option), which is used for mixing evsels
that aren't system-wide with ones that are [1]. However, for global
system wide recording (perf record -a ...), evsel->system_wide is set
to false, which is confusion.

This patch set evsel->system_wide to true if the target.system_wide is
set, which makes evsel->system_wide a reliable way to describe whether
itself is system_wide or not.
