Subject[PATCH RESEND 2/2] perf tool: evsel: say which PMU Hardware event doesn't support sampling/overflow-interrupts
Help identify to the user the event with the unsupported sampling
error. Also suggest a corrective action.

BEFORE:

$ sudo ./oldperf record -e armv8_pmuv3/mem_access/,ccn/cycles/,armv8_pmuv3/l2d_cache/ true
Error:
PMU Hardware doesn't support sampling/overflow-interrupts.

AFTER:

$ sudo ./newperf record -e armv8_pmuv3/mem_access/,ccn/cycles/,armv8_pmuv3/l2d_cache/ true
Error:
ccn/cycles/: PMU Hardware doesn't support sampling/overflow-interrupts. Try 'perf stat'
