perf stat: clarify unsupported events from uncounted events

perf stat continues running even if the event list contains counters
that are not supported. The resulting output then contains <not counted>
for those events which gets confusing as to which events are supported,
but not counted and which are not supported.

Before:

perf stat -ddd -- sleep 1
