periodic samples are generated after the specified period. I want the
first sample immediately and the remainder based on the set period.

So generically, how do you get the first sample into the event stream
and let the others happen based on the timer? I need not only the
counter value but also the perf_clock timestamp that comes from the
SAMPLE_TIME attribute.
