This patch series adds support for thread stack and callchain.

Patch 01 is to fix the unsigned variable comparison to zero; patch 02 is
to refactor the instruction size calculation; these two patches are
preparation for patch 03.

Patch 03 is to add thread stack support, after applying this patch the
option '-F,+callindent' can be used by perf script tool; patch 04 is to
add branch filter thus the Perf tool can display branch samples only
for function calls and returns after enable the call indentation or call
chain related options.

Patch 05 is to synthesize call chain for the instruction samples.

Patch 06 allows the instruction sample can be handled synchronously with
the thread stack, thus it fixes an error for the callchain generation.

This patch set has been tested on 96boards Hikey620 after applied on
perf/core branch with latest commit f7bf75a78095 ("perf annotate: Don't
return -1 for error when doing BPF disassembly").

Changes from v2:
* Added patch 01 to fix the unsigned variable comparison to zero
  (Suzuki).
* Refined commit logs.

Changes from v1:
* Added comments for task thread handling (Mathieu).
* Split patch 02 into two patches, one is for support thread stack and
  another is for callchain support (Mathieu).
* Added a new patch to support branch filter.
