perf tests: Introduce perf_regs_load function on ARM
Introducing perf_regs_load function, which is going to be used for dwarf unwind test in following patches. It takes single argument as a pointer to the regs dump buffer and populates it with current registers values.

+/*
+ * Implementation of void perf_regs_load(u64 *regs);
+ *
+ * This functions fills in the 'regs' buffer from the actual registers values,
+ * in the way the perf built-in unwinding test expects them:
+ * - the PC at the time at the call to this function. Since this function
+ * is called using a bl instruction, the PC value is taken from LR.
+ * The built-in unwinding test then unwinds the call stack from the dwarf
+ * information in unwind__get_entries.
+ *
+ * Notes:
+ * - the 8 bytes stride in the registers offsets comes from the fact
+ * that the registers are stored in an u64 array (u64 *regs),
+ * - the regs buffer needs to be zeroed before the call to this function,
+ * in this case using a calloc in dwarf-unwind.c.
