Library to program the performance monitoring events

Libpfm4 helps convert from an event name, expressed as a string, to the event encoding. The encoding can then be used with specific OS interfaces. Libpfm4 also provides OS-specific interfaces to directly setup OS-specific data structures to be passed to the kernel.
