[PULL][Bionic] Restructure perf vendor event support for arm64

This PR comprises all clean cherry picks from upstream that
restructures arm64 perf vendor event support, followed by a fix to
enable that support for ThunderX2 B0 silicon. The latter could be
backported without the restructuring - indeed, that's what I plan to
submit for artful - however I think this larger backport is a better
approach for bionic. We'll very likely need to add support for other
arm64 platforms throughout the support life of bionic, and that will
be easier/safer if we're on the other side of this transition.
