Introduce the perf_regression test suite that must be run manually to
check if the support for the Perf-related features are available on the
current machine. This test cannot be run automatically since there are
some platforms where it can fail.

For now, the test only makes sure that we can trace events with perf
contexts enabled by raw ID in kernel and user-space. The test only works
if libpfm is installed on the system and fails if it is not installed.

This patch does not build here.

I think this should point to
