perf/x86/intel/cqm: Return cached counter value from IRQ context

Peter reported the following potential crash which I was able to
reproduce with his test program,

The CQM task events are not safe to be called from within interrupt
context because they require performing an IPI to read the counter value
on all sockets. And performing IPIs from within IRQ context is a
"no-no".

Make do with the last read counter value currently event in
event->count when we're invoked in this context.
