cd09c0c40a97 ("perf events: Enable raw event support for Intel unhalted_reference_cycles event")

We used the fake event=0x00, umask=0x03 for CPU_CLK_UNHALTED.REF_TSC,
because that was not available as a generic event, *until now* it seems.
I see ICL actually has it as a generic event, which means we need to fix
up the constraint mask for that differently.

But note that for all previous uarchs this event did not in fact exist.

It appears the TOPDOWN.SLOTS thing, which is available in in FIXED3 is
event=0x00, umask=0x04, is indeed a generic event too.
