Subject: [RFC PATCH 03/11] bpf: export proto for bpf_perf_event_output helper

The bpf_perf_event_output helper is used by various tracer BPF program
types, but it was not visible outside of bpf_trace.c.  In order to make
it available to tracer BPF program types that are implemented elsewhere,
a function is added similar to bpf_get_trace_printk_proto() to query the
prototype (bpf_get_perf_event_output_proto()).
