'perf kvm record' uses 'cycles'(if the user did not specify any event) as
the default event to profile the guest.
This will not provide any proper samples from the guest incase of
powerpc architecture, since in powerpc the PMUs are controlled by
the guest rather than the host.

Patch adds a function to pick an arch specific event for 'perf kvm record',
instead of selecting 'cycles' as a default event for all architectures.

For powerpc this function checks for any user specified event, and if there
isn't any it returns invalid instead of proceeding with 'cycles' event.

in powerpc.
