perf_counter, x86: implement the interrupt handler for AMD cpus

This patch implements the interrupt handler for AMD performance
counters. In difference to the Intel pmu, there is no single status
register and also there are no fixed counters. This makes the handler
very different and it is useful to make the handler vendor
specific. To check if a counter is overflowed the upper bit of the
counter is checked. Only counters where the active bit is set are

With this patch throttling is enabled for AMD performance counters.

This patch also reenables Linux performance counters on AMD cpus.
