[PATCH 5.8 092/186] perf cs-etm: Fix corrupt data after perf inject from

[ Upstream commit f5f8e7e55fbdb4fdddec73518e23c48083108fbb ]

Commit 42bbabed09ce6208 ("perf tools: Add hw_idx in struct branch_stack")
changed the format of branch stacks in perf samples. When samples use
this new format, a flag must be set in the corresponding event.

Synthesized branch stacks generated from CoreSight ETM trace were using
the new format, but not setting the event attribute, leading to
consumers seeing corrupt data. This patch fixes the issue by setting the
event attribute to indicate use of the new format.
