[PATCH 5.8 093/186] perf intel-pt: Fix corrupt data after perf inject from

[ Upstream commit a347306fbec5dcaf7c276777b11d530eab6a4526 ]

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 Intel PT 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.
