perf_counter tools: Add CREDITS file for Git contributors
Much of perf's libraries comes from the Git project. I noticed that the files (in tools/perf/util/*.[ch] and elsewhere) are quite spartan wrt. credits, so lets add a CREDITS file that includes an (incomplete!) list of main contributors. Thanks guys, these libraries are really useful. Special thanks go to Johannes Schindelin and Junio C Hamano for coming up with this list.
