Add 'overwrite' attribute to evsel to mark whether this event is
overwritable. The following commits will support syntax like:

  # perf record -e cycles/overwrite/ ...

An overwritable evsel requires kernel support for the
perf_event_attr.write_backward ring buffer feature.

Add it to perf_missing_feature.
