tracing/samples: Update the trace-event-sample.h with TRACE_DEFINE_ENUM()
Document the use of TRACE_DEFINE_ENUM() by adding enums to the trace-event-sample.h and using this macro to convert them in the format files. Also update the comments and sho the use of __print_symbolic() and __print_flags() as well as adding comments abount __print_array().
