cmd/trace: don't drop sweep slice details

For sweep events, we used to modify the ViewerEvent returned from
ctx.emitSlice later in order to embed more details about the sweep
operation. The trick no longer works after the change and caused a regression.

ctx.emit method encodes the ViewerEvent, so any modification to the
ViewerEvent object after ctx.emit returns will not be reflected.

Refactor ctx.emitSlice, so ctx.makeSlice can be used when producing
slices for SWEEP. ctx.emit* methods are meant to truely emit

Fixes golang#27711
