perf/x86/intel: Use rdmsrl_safe() when initializing RAPL PMU
CPUs which should support the RAPL counters according to Family/Model/Stepping may still issue #GP when attempting to access the RAPL MSRs. This may happen when Linux is running under KVM and we are passing-through host F/M/S data, for example. Use rdmsrl_safe to first access the RAPL_POWER_UNIT MSR; if this fails, do not attempt to use this PMU.
