Series KVM: x86/pmu: Add basic support to enable guest PEBS via DS | expand

With PEBS virtualization, the guest PEBS records get delivered to the
guest DS, and the host pmi handler uses perf_guest_cbs->is_in_guest()
to distinguish whether the PMI comes from the guest code like Intel PT.

No matter how many guest PEBS counters are overflowed, only triggering
one fake event is enough. The fake event causes the KVM PMI callback to
be called, thereby injecting the PEBS overflow PMI into the guest.

KVM may inject the PMI with BUFFER_OVF set, even if the guest DS is
empty. That should really be harmless. Thus guest PEBS handler would
retrieve the correct information from its own PEBS records buffer.
