perf stat: Fix compatibility behavior

Instead of failing on an unknown event, when new perf stat is run on
older kernels:

  $ ./perf stat true
  Error: open_counter returned with 22 (Invalid argument). /bin/dmesg
  may provide additional information.

  Fatal: Not all events could be opened.

Just ignore EINVAL and ENOSYS, we'll print the results as not counted:

 Performance counter stats for 'true':
