Subject: [PATCH 3/7 v6] perf/core: Add a callback to perf events

A simple callback in a perf event can be used for multiple purposes.
For example it is useful for triggered based events like hardware
breakpoints that need a callback to dispatch a triggered breakpoint
event.

v2: Simplify a bit the callback attribution as suggested by Paul
    Mackerras
