From: Tom Zanussi <tom.zanussi@linux.intel.com>

The hist trigger action code currently implements two essentially
hard-coded pairs of 'actions' - onmax(), which tracks a variable and
saves some event fields when a max is hit, and onmatch(), which is
hard-coded to generate a synthetic event.

These hardcoded pairs (track max/save fields and detect match/generate
synthetic event) should really be decoupled into separate components
that can then be arbitrarily combined.  The first component of each
pair (track max/detect match) is called a 'handler' in the new code,
while the second component (save fields/generate synthetic event) is
called an 'action' in this scheme.

This change refactors the action code to reflect this split by adding
two handlers, HANDLER_ONMATCH and HANDLER_ONMAX, along with two
actions, ACTION_SAVE and ACTION_TRACE.

The new code combines them to produce the existing ONMATCH/TRACE and
ONMAX/SAVE functionality, but doesn't implement the other combinations
now possible.  Future patches will expand these to further useful
cases, such as ONMAX/TRACE, as well as add additional handlers and
actions such as ONCHANGE and SNAPSHOT.
