perf tools: Fix raw sample reading
Wrong pointer is being passed for raw data sanity checking, when parsing sample event. This ends up with invalid event and perf record being stuck in __perf_session__process_events function during processing build IDs (process_buildids function). Following command hangs up in my setup: ./perf record -e raw_syscalls:sys_enter ls The fix is to use proper pointer to the raw data instead of the 'u' union.
