[ Upstream commit bd3c628f8fafa6cbd6a1ca440034b841f0080160 ]

When recording with cache-misses and arm_spe_x event, I found that it
will just fail without showing any error info if i put cache-misses
after 'arm_spe_x' event.

[root@localhost 0620]# perf record -e cache-misses \
-e arm_spe_0/ts_enable=1,pct_enable=1,pa_enable=1,load_filter=1,jitter=1,store_filter=1,min_latency=0/ sleep 1
[ perf record: Woken up 1 times to write data ]
[ perf record: Captured and wrote 0.067 MB perf.data ]
[root@localhost 0620]#
[root@localhost 0620]# perf record -e arm_spe_0/ts_enable=1,pct_enable=1,pa_enable=1,load_filter=1,jitter=1,store_filter=1,min_latency=0/ \
-e cache-misses sleep 1
[root@localhost 0620]#

The current code can only work if the only event to be traced is an
'arm_spe_x', or if it is the last event to be specified. Otherwise the
last event type will be checked against all the arm_spe_pmus[i]->types,
none will match and an out of bound 'i' index will be used in

We don't support concurrent multiple arm_spe_x events currently, that
is checked in arm_spe_recording_options(), and it will show the relevant
info. So add the check and record of the first found 'arm_spe_pmu' to
fix this issue here.
