To build this program successfully with clang, there have three
compiler options need to be specified:

  - Header file path: tools/perf/include/bpf;
  - Specify architecture;
  - Define macro __NR_CPUS__.

This patch add comments to explain the reasons for building failure and
give two examples for llvm.clang-opt variable, one is for x86_64
architecture and another is for aarch64 architecture.

+ * This program include two header files 'unistd.h' and 'pid_filter.h', which

+ *
+ * E.g. Test on a platform with 8 CPUs with x86_64 architecture:
+ *
+ *   [llvm]
+ *		clang-opt = "-D__NR_CPUS__=8 -D__x86_64__ \
+ *			     -I./tools/perf/include/bpf"

+ *   [llvm]
+ *		clang-opt = "-D__NR_CPUS__=5 -D__aarch64__ \
+ *			     -I./tools/perf/include/bpf"

  * This exactly matches what is marshalled into the raw_syscall:sys_enter
  * payload expected by the 'perf trace' beautifiers.
