perf data: Allow to use stdio functions for pipe mode
When perf data is in a pipe, it reads each event separately using read(2) syscall. This is a huge performance bottleneck when processing large data like in perf inject. Also perf inject needs to use write(2) syscall for the output. So convert it to use buffer I/O functions in stdio library for pipe data. This makes inject-build-id bench time drops from 20ms to 8ms. $ perf bench internals inject-build-id # Running 'internals/inject-build-id' benchmark: Average build-id injection took: 8.074 msec (+- 0.013 msec) Average time per event: 0.792 usec (+- 0.001 usec) Average memory usage: 8328 KB (+- 0 KB) Average build-id-all injection took: 5.490 msec (+- 0.008 msec) Average time per event: 0.538 usec (+- 0.001 usec) Average memory usage: 7563 KB (+- 0 KB) This patch enables it just for perf inject when used with pipe (it's a default behavior). Maybe we could do it for perf record and/or report later..
