perf probe: Support a special SDT probe format

Support a special SDT probe format which can omit the '%' prefix only if
the SDT group name starts with "sdt_". So, for example both of
"%sdt_libc:setjump" and "sdt_libc:setjump" are acceptable for perf probe
--add.

E.g. without this:

# perf probe -a sdt_libc:setjmp
Semantic error :There is non-digit char in line number.
...

With this:

# perf probe -a sdt_libc:setjmp
Added new event:
sdt_libc:setjmp (on %setjmp in /usr/lib64/libc-2.20.so)

You can now use it in all perf tools, such as:

perf record -e sdt_libc:setjmp -aR sleep 1

'EVENT' specifies the name of new event, if omitted, it will be set the name of the probed function. You can also specify a group name by 'GROUP', if omitted, set 'probe' is used for kprobe and 'probe_<bin>' is used for uprobe.
Note that using existing group name can conflict with other events. Especially, using the group name reserved for kernel modules can hide embedded events in the
