perf tools: Don't clone maps from parent when synthesizing forks

When synthesizing FORK events, we are trying to create thread objects
for the already running tasks on the machine.

Normally, for a kernel FORK event, we want to clone the parent's maps
because that is what the kernel just did.

But when synthesizing, this should not be done.  If we do, we end up
with overlapping maps as we process the sythesized MMAP2 events that
get delivered shortly thereafter.

Use the FORK event misc flags in an internal way to signal this
situation, so we can elide the map clone when appropriate.

[ Added comment about flag use in machine__process_fork_event(),
  use ternary op in thread__clone_map_groups() as suggested by Jiri ]
