SubjectRe: [PATCH v1] perf stat: avoid 10ms limit for printing event counts

At some point I still hope we can make uncore measurements in
perf record work. Kan tried at some point to allow multiple
PMUs in a group, but was not successfull. But perhaps we
can sample them from a software event instead.

I would print it unconditionally. Very few people use -v.

BTW better of course would be to occasionally measure the perf stat
cpu time and only print the warning if it's above some percentage
of a CPU. But that would be much more work.

Rest looks ok.
