Subject[080/205] perf, x86: Fix incorrect branches event on AMD CPUs
2.6.34-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Vince Weaver <vweaver1@eecs.utk.edu>

commit f287d332ce835f77a4f5077d2c0ef1e3f9ea42d2 upstream.

While doing some performance counter validation tests on some
assembly language programs I noticed that the "branches:u"
count was very wrong on AMD machines.

It looks like the wrong event was selected.
