    perf tools: Fix perf_event.h header usage · d030260a

    This patch fixes the usage of the perf_event.h header file
    between command modules and the supporting code in util.
    
    It is necessary to ensure that ALL files use the SAME
    perf_event.h header from the kernel source tree.
    
    There were a couple of #include <linux/perf_event.h> mixed
    with #include "../../perf_event.h".
    
    This caused issues on some distros because of mismatch
    in the layout of struct perf_event_attr. That eventually
    led perf stat to segfault.
