perf_counter: Generic per counter interrupt throttle

Introduce a generic per counter interrupt throttle.

This uses the perf_counter_overflow() quick disable to throttle a specific
counter when its going too fast when a pmu->unthrottle() method is provided
which can undo the quick disable.

Power needs to implement both the quick disable and the unthrottle method.
