perf_counter: Subtract the buffer size field from the event record size



We compute the perf raw sample size by aligning the raw ftrace
event size plus the buffer size field itself. We do that
instead of aligning only the perf raw sample size, so that we
might economize some in some cases.

But this buffer size field is not stored in the perf raw
sample, we must then substract its size from the buffer once we
computed the alignment unless we may get a useless u32 field in
the buffer.
