perf probe: Show error code and description in verbose mode

Show error code and description only in verbose mode if 'perf probe'
command failed.

Current 'perf probe' shows error code with final error message, and that
is meaningless for many users.

This changes error messages to show the error code and its description
only in verbose mode (-v option).

Without this patch:
-----
# perf probe -a do_execve@hoge
Probe point 'do_execve@hoge' not found.
Error: Failed to add events. (-2)
-----

With this patch, normally the message doesn't show the misterious error
number:
-----
# perf probe -a do_execve@hoge
Probe point 'do_execve@hoge' not found.
Error: Failed to add events.
-----

And in verbose mode, it also shows additional error messages as below:
-----
# perf probe -va do_execve@hoge
probe-definition(0): do_execve@hoge
symbol:do_execve file:hoge line:0 offset:0 return:0 lazy:(null)
0 arguments
Looking at the vmlinux_path (6 entries long)
Using /lib/modules/3.15.0-rc8+/build/vmlinux for symbols
Open Debuginfo file: /lib/modules/3.15.0-rc8+/build/vmlinux
Try to find probe point from debuginfo.
Probe point 'do_execve@hoge' not found.
Error: Failed to add events. Reason: No such file or directory (Code: -2)
