perf stat: Add -d/--detailed flag to run with a lot of events

Add the new -d/--detailed flag, which generates a pretty detailed event list:

 Performance counter stats for './hackbench 10' (10 runs):

        0.138966828  seconds time elapsed  ( +-  4.11% )

This can be used "at a glance" for narrower analysis.

-d can also be used in addition to other -e events, to further expand an event list.
