Subject: [PATCH] KVM: ARM64: Update perf event when setting PMU count value

Guest will adjust the sample period and set PMU counter value when
it takes a long time to handle the PMU interrupts.

However, we don't have a corresponding change on the virtual PMU
which is emulated via a perf event. It could cause a large number
of PMU interrupts injected to guest. Then guest will get hang for
handling these interrupts.

So update the sample_period of perf event if the counter value is
changed to avoid this case.
