perf: Add perf_output_skip function to skip bytes in sample
Introducing perf_output_skip function to be able to skip data within the perf ring buffer. When writing data into perf ring buffer we first reserve needed place in ring buffer and then copy the actual data. There's a possibility we won't be able to fill all the reserved size with data, so we need a way to skip the remaining bytes. This is going to be useful when storing the user stack dump, where we might end up with less data than we originally requested.
