Subject: [PATCH] perf/x86/intel: Use rdmsrl_safe when initializing RAPL PMU.

CPUs which should support the RAPL counters according to
Family/Model/Stepping may still issue #GP when attempting to access
the RAPL MSRs. This may happen when Linux is running under KVM and
we are passing-through host F/M/S data, for example. Use rdmsrl_safe
to first access the RAPL_POWER_UNIT MSR; if this fails, do not
attempt to use this PMU.
