Subject: [PATCH 2/3] perf x86: Add precise sysfs attribute

Adding sysfs precise attribute for cpu device (/sys/devices/cpu)
to show the maximum value for perf event precise attribute.

This will be initialy used for automated precise event perf test
and could be helpful otherwise. Arnaldo suggested to use this as
a guide for default adding of precise attribute for HW events.
