perf record,report,annotate,diff: Process events in order



This patch changes perf report to ask for the ID info on all events be
default if recording from multiple CPUs.

Perf report, annotate and diff will now process the events in order if
the kernel is able to provide timestamps on all events. This ensures
that events such as COMM and MMAP which are necessary to correctly
interpret samples are processed prior to those samples so that they are
attributed correctly.
