Fix T9384: fix increacing capabilites number for eventlog.

Authored by qnikst on Dec 25 2014, 5:10 PM.



Event log had inconcistent support for increacing capabilies
number, as header were not inserted in capability buffer. It
resulted in a ghc-events crash (see Trac #9384). This commit
fixes this issue by inserting required header when number
of capabilies grows.

I can't tell if that covers all problems with eventlogs vs changing the number of capabilities and I haven't tested it, but it looks good. If it just passes the test described in the trac ticket and doesn't cause regression wrt the few tests in the ghc-events package, it's already a very useful fix, especially given its size. I will keep this fix in mind when triaging ghc-events and ThreadScope issues.
