Do we need COUNTER_SCOPE_NONE to go with COUNTER_COMPONENT_NONE?

Instead of "Count, extension, etc.", it could be more helpful
to say one of enum counter_component_type.

Same here. @scope must be one of enum counter_scope.

It could be helpful to say that these id numbers match
the X/Y/Z in the sysfs paths as described in the sysfs
ABI.

It would be helpful to say that @event must be one of
enum counter_event_type.

It would be useful to say that @channel should be 0 unless
a component has more than one event of the same type.

There are error codes larger than 255. Probably better
make this __u32.
