perf probe: Support basic type casting

Add basic type casting for arguments to perf probe. This allows
users to specify the actual type of arguments. Of course, if
user sets invalid types, kprobe-tracer rejects that.

--------------
Each probe argument follows below syntax.

- [NAME=]LOCALVAR|$retval|%REG|@SYMBOL
+ [NAME=]LOCALVAR|$retval|%REG|@SYMBOL[:TYPE]

'NAME' specifies the name of this argument (optional). You can use the name of local variable, local data structure member (e.g. var->field, var.field2), or kprobe-tracer argument format (e.g. $retval, %ax, etc). Note that the name of this argument will be set as the last member name if you specify a local data structure member (e.g. field2 for 'var->field1.field2'.)
+'TYPE' casts the type of this argument (optional). If omitted, perf probe automatically set the type based on debuginfo.
