ARM: 6352/1: perf: fix event validation

The validate_event function in the ARM perf events backend has the
following problems:

1.) Events that are disabled count towards the cost.
2.) Events associated with other PMUs [for example, software events or
    breakpoints] do not count towards the cost, but do fail validation,
    causing the group to fail.

This patch changes validate_event so that it ignores events in the
PERF_EVENT_STATE_OFF state or that are scheduled for other PMUs.
