tracing: add format file to describe event struct fields



This patch adds the "format" file to the trace point event directory.
This is based off of work by Tom Zanussi, in which a file is exported
to be tread from user land such that a user space app may read the
binary record stored in the ring buffer.

 # cat /debug/tracing/events/sched/sched_switch/format
        field:pid_t prev_pid;   offset:12;      size:4;
        field:int prev_prio;    offset:16;      size:4;
        field special:char next_comm[TASK_COMM_LEN];    offset:20;      size:16;
        field:pid_t next_pid;   offset:36;      size:4;
        field:int next_prio;    offset:40;      size:4;
