'perf stat' accepts some config terms but doesn't apply them. For
example:

  # perf stat -e 'instructions/no-inherit/' -e 'instructions/inherit/' bash
  # ls
  # exit

  Performance counter stats for 'bash':

         266258061      instructions/no-inherit/
         266258061      instructions/inherit/

       1.402183915 seconds time elapsed

The result is confusing, because user may expect the first
'instructions' event exclude the 'ls' command.

This patch forbid most of these config terms for 'perf stat'.

Result:

  # ./perf stat -e 'instructions/no-inherit/' -e 'instructions/inherit/' bash
  event syntax error: 'instructions/no-inherit/'
                       \___ 'no-inherit' is not usable in 'perf stat'
  ...

We can add blocked config terms back when 'perf stat' really supports them.

This patch also removes unavailable config term from error message:

  # ./perf stat -e 'instructions/badterm/' ls
  event syntax error: 'instructions/badterm/'
                                    \___ unknown term

  valid terms: config,config1,config2,name

  # ./perf stat -e 'cpu/badterm/' ls
  event syntax error: 'cpu/badterm/'
                           \___ unknown term

  valid terms: pc,any,inv,edge,cmask,event,in_tx,ldlat,umask,in_tx_cp,offcore_rsp,config,config1,config2,name
