perf/x86/intel: Introduce PERF_RECORD_LOST_SAMPLES

After enlarging the PEBS interrupt threshold, there may be some mixed up
PEBS samples which are discarded by the kernel.

This patch makes the kernel emit a PERF_RECORD_LOST_SAMPLES record with
the number of possible discarded records when it is impossible to demux
the samples.

It makes sure the user is not left in the dark about such discards.
