Subject[PATCH] perf parser: Improve error message for PMU address filters
Date
This patch improves the error message of the perf events parser
when the PMU hardware does not support address filters.

Previously, the perf returned the following error:
> --filter option should follow a -e tracepoint or HW tracer option
This implies there is some syntax error present in the command line,
which is not true. Rather, notify the user that the CPU does not have
support for this feature.

For example, Intel chips based on the Broadwell micro-archticture have
the Intel PT PMU, but do not support address filtering.
