perf/x86/intel: Fix incorrect lbr_sel_mask value

This patch fixes a bug which was introduced by:

b16a5b52eb90 ("perf/x86: Add option to disable reading branch flags/cycles")

In this patch, lbr_sel_mask is used to mask the lbr_select. But LBR_SEL_MASK
doesn't include the bit for LBR_CALL_STACK. So LBR call stack will never be
set in lbr_select.

This patch corrects the LBR_SEL_MASK by including all valid bits in
LBR_SELECT. Also, the LBR_CALL_STACK bit is different as other bit in
LBR_SELECT. It does not operate in suppress mode, so it needs to be
specially handled in intel_pmu_setup_hw_lbr_filter.
