If user specifies option '-F,+callindent' or call chain related options,
it means users only care about function calls and returns; for these
cases, it's pointless to generate samples for the branches within
function.  But unlike other hardware trace handling (e.g. Intel's pt or
bts), Arm CoreSight doesn't filter branch types for these options and
generate samples for all branches, this causes Perf to output many
spurious blanks if the branch is not a function call or return.

To only output pairs of calls and returns, this patch introduces branch
filter and the filter is set according to synthetic options.  Finally,
Perf can output only for calls and returns and avoid to output other
unnecessary blanks.

Before:
