Ensure that reads of the PMCCNTR_EL0 are monotonically increasing,
even for the smallest delta of two subsequent reads.

This is a 64-bit register, even for arm, but I guess there's no
need to access more than 32-bits using mrrc?

You need to zero pmu out first, it's just random stack junk except
for 'enable' definitely being 1 at this point.
