perf_counter tools: Move from Documentation/perf_counter/ to tools/perf/
Several people have suggested that 'perf' has become a full-fledged tool that should be moved out of Documentation/. Move it to the (new) tools/ directory.

+perf-help(1)
+============
+
+NAME
+----
+perf-help - display help information about perf
+
+SYNOPSIS
+--------
+'perf help' [-a|--all] [COMMAND]
+
+DESCRIPTION
+-----------
+
+With no options and no COMMAND given, the synopsis of the 'perf'
+command and a list of the most commonly used perf commands are printed
+on the standard output.
+
+If the option '--all' or '-a' is given, then all available commands are
+printed on the standard output.
+
+If a perf command is named, a manual page for that command is brought
+up. The 'man' program is used by default for this purpose, but this
+can be overridden by other options or configuration variables.
+
+Note that `perf --help ...` is identical to `perf help ...` because the
+former is internally converted into the latter.
+
+OPTIONS
+-------
+-a::
+--all::
+ Prints all the available commands on the standard output. This
+ option supersedes any other option.
