tools: kvm_stat: Introduce pid monitoring
Having stats for single VMs can help to determine the problem of a VM without the need of running other tools like perf. The tracepoints already allowed pid level monitoring, but kvm_stat didn't have support for it till now. Support for the newly implemented debugfs vm monitoring was also implemented.
