The generic non-hw perf event stuff builds fine on sparc32,
please don't remove this unless you have a legitimate build
failure to report and fix.

Even if sparc32 doesn't provide atomic64_t support, it very
easily could do so using include/asm-generic/atomic64.h which
implements them using spinlocks.
