perf test: Support the ins_lat check in the X86 specific test

The ins_lat of PERF_SAMPLE_WEIGHT_STRUCT stands for the instruction
latency, which is only available for X86. Add a X86 specific test for
the ins_lat and PERF_SAMPLE_WEIGHT_STRUCT type.

The test__x86_sample_parsing() uses the same way as the
test__sample_parsing() to verify a sample type. Since the ins_lat and
PERF_SAMPLE_WEIGHT_STRUCT are the only X86 specific sample type for now,
the test__x86_sample_parsing() only verify the PERF_SAMPLE_WEIGHT_STRUCT
type. Other sample types are still verified in the generic test.

  $ perf test 77 -v
  77: x86 Sample parsing                                              :
  --- start ---
  test child forked, pid 102370
  test child finished with 0
  ---- end ----
  x86 Sample parsing: Ok
