perf_counter, x86: return raw count with x86_perf_counter_update()

To check on AMD cpus if a counter overflows, the upper bit of the raw
counter value must be checked. This value is already internally
available in x86_perf_counter_update(). Now, the value is returned so
that it can be used directly to check for overflows.
