perf/ioctl: Add check for the sample_period value

perf_event_open() limits the sample_period to 63 bits. See:

0819b2e30ccb ("perf: Limit perf_event_attr::sample_period to 63 bits")

Make ioctl() consistent with it.

Also on PowerPC, negative sample_period could cause a recursive
PMIs leading to a hang (reported when running perf-fuzzer).
