Hi, Jaswinder

Below patch fixes the regression on my P4 machine.
Would you please have a try it?

Thanks.

Subject: [PATCH] x86, perf: P4 PMU -- fix wrong compare

p4_event_bind::cntr is "unsigned char".
But p4_next_cntr has return type of "int".
So the explicit conversion is needed to get the correct result.
