Basic perf PMU support for Haswell v1

This is based on v7 of the full Haswell PMU support, but
ported to the latest perf/core and stripped down to the "basic support"
as requested.

I decided to include LBRs in the basic support. These are 4 patches
self contained at the end, so could be also handled as a separate
unit if that is preferable.

Contains support for:
- Basic Haswell PMU and PEBS support
- Late unmasking of the PMI
- Support for wide counters
- New TSX counter flags, exported as sysfs attributes
- Support for checkpointed counters.
- New LBR flags, exported as new flags with tools support
