perf_counter: Fix /0 bug in swcounters

We have a race in the swcounter stuff where we can start
counting a counter that has never been enabled, this leads to a
/0 situation.

The below avoids the /0 but doesn't close the race, this would
need a new counter state.

The race is due to perf_swcounter_is_counting() which cannot
discern between disabled due to scheduled out, and disabled for
any other reason.

Such a crash has been seen by Ingo:
