perf evsel: Fix use of inherit
Arnaldo Carvalho de Melo [Thu, 14 Apr 2011 14:20:14 +0000 (11:20 -0300)]
perf stat doesn't mmap and its perfectly fine for it to use task-bound
counters with inheritance.

So set the attr.inherit on the caller and leave the syscall itself to
validate it.

When the mmap fails perf_evlist__mmap will just emit a warning if this
is the failure reason.
