perf_counter tools: Also display time-normalized stat results

Add new column that normalizes counter results by
'nanoseconds spent running' unit.

Before:

Performance counter stats for '/home/mingo/hackbench':

10469.403605 task clock ticks (msecs)
75502 context switches (events)
9501 CPU migrations (events)
36158 pagefaults (events)
31975676185 CPU cycles (events)
26257738659 instructions (events)
108740581 cache references (events)
54606088 cache misses (events)

Wall-clock time elapsed: 810.514504 msecs

After:

Performance counter stats for '/home/mingo/hackbench':

10469.403605 task clock ticks (msecs)
75502 context switches # 0.007 M/sec
9501 CPU migrations # 0.001 M/sec
36158 pagefaults # 0.003 M/sec
31975676185 CPU cycles # 3054.202 M/sec
26257738659 instructions # 2508.045 M/sec
108740581 cache references # 10.387 M/sec
54606088 cache misses # 5.216 M/sec

Wall-clock time elapsed: 810.514504 msecs

The advantage of that column is that it is characteristic of the
execution workflow, regardless of runtime. Hence 'hackbench 10'
will look similar to 'hackbench 15' - while the absolute counter
values are very different.
