We have prepared the flags in the packet structure, so need to copy
the related value into sample structure thus perf tool can facilitate
sample flags.

The PREV_PACKET contains the branch instruction flags and PACKET
actually contains the flags for next branch instruction.  So this patch
is to set sample flags with 'etmq->prev_packet->flags'.

This patch includes two fixing up: if there has TRACE_ON packet in the
middle of instruction packets, the TRACE_ON packet indicates the trace
is discontinuous, so append the flag PERF_IP_FLAG_TRACE_END to the
previous packet; if the coming packet is exception packet or exception
return packet, also update the previous packet for exception specific
flags.
