perf/x86/lbr: Avoid reading the LBRs when adaptive PEBS handles them

With adaptive PEBS the CPU can directly supply the LBR information,
so we don't need to read it again. But the LBRs still need to be
enabled. Add a special count to the cpuc that distinguishes these
two cases, and avoid reading the LBRs unnecessarily when PEBS is
active.
