Sorry. You are right. It's the same.

It will be "Running". We can distinguish based on block_start of sleep_start

sched_switch belongs to scheduler.
sched_stat belongs to sched_fair.

I am not sure, that it's bad. Send this patches in LKML.

I pushed my tree on github git://github.com/avagin/perf.git. Look at 
branch "arun" https://github.com/avagin/perf/tree/arun

It works for me. You can find output of commands bellow.

# ./perf record -e sched:sched_switch -agP
[ perf record: Woken up 1 times to write data ]
[ perf record: Captured and wrote 0.091 MB perf.data (~3954 samples) ]

# ./perf report -D | grep SAMPLE.*period:
1 1539849049077 0x10d78 [0xc8]: PERF_RECORD_SAMPLE(IP, 1): 34/34: 
0xffffffff810527c4 period: 7714488 addr: 0

#./perf script
  kworker/1:2    34 [001]  1539.849049: sched_switch: prev_comm=perf 
prev_pid=2700 prev_prio=120 prev_state=R ==> next_comm=kworker/1:2 
next_pid=34 next_prio=120 delay=7714488
