perf/core: Allow kernel filters on CPU events

While supporting file-based address filters for CPU events requires some
extra context switch handling, kernel address filters are easy, since the
kernel mapping is preserved across address spaces. It is also useful as
it permits tracing scheduling paths of the kernel.

This patch allows setting up kernel filters for CPU events.
