Subject[RFC][PATCH 4/5] perfcounter: Grow the event number to 64 bits
The event number are defined by the config attr of a counter. When it
is passed while adding a hit, it is compared against the initial
config attr, a 64 bits number, to retrieve the targetted counter.

But when we want to add a hit, this event is passed through 32 bits
parameters, which makes loosing the real event number if its storage
needs more (case of an address).

This patch changes the event parameter in some of the helpers which
add the event hits.
