[PATCH] perf sched latency: Fix removed thread issue

From: Jiri Olsa
Date: Mon Nov 02 2015 - 06:10:35 EST

If machine's thread gets excited (EXIT event is received),
we set thread->dead = true and it is later on removed from
machine's tree if the pid is reused on new thread.

The latency subcommand holds tree of working atoms sorted
by thread's pid/tid. If there's new thread with same pid
and tid, the old working atom is found and assert bug
condition is hit in search function:

thread_atoms_search: Assertion `!(thread != atoms->thread)' failed

Changing the sort function to use thread object pointers
together with pid and tid check. This way new thread will
never find old one with same pid/tid.

I think we could change this to the sort based on timestamp
of thread creation, once it's added within Namhyung's thread
