perf bpf: Add 'syscall_enter' probe helper for syscall enter tracepoints

Allowing one to hook into the syscalls:sys_enter_NAME tracepoints,
an example is provided that hooks into the 'openat' syscall.

Using it with the probe:vfs_getname probe into getname_flags to get the
filename args as it is copied from userspace:

  # perf probe -l
  probe:vfs_getname    (on getname_flags:73@acme/git/linux/fs/namei.c with pathname)
  # perf trace -e probe:*getname,tools/perf/examples/bpf/sys_enter_openat.c cat /etc/passwd > /dev/null
     0.000 probe:vfs_getname:(ffffffffbd2a8983) pathname="/etc/ld.so.preload"
     0.022 syscalls:sys_enter_openat:dfd: CWD, filename: 0xafbe8da8, flags: CLOEXEC
     0.027 probe:vfs_getname:(ffffffffbd2a8983) pathname="/etc/ld.so.cache"
     0.054 syscalls:sys_enter_openat:dfd: CWD, filename: 0xafdf0ce0, flags: CLOEXEC
     0.057 probe:vfs_getname:(ffffffffbd2a8983) pathname="/lib64/libc.so.6"
     0.316 probe:vfs_getname:(ffffffffbd2a8983) pathname="/usr/lib/locale/locale-archive"
     0.375 syscalls:sys_enter_openat:dfd: CWD, filename: 0xe2b2b0b4
     0.379 probe:vfs_getname:(ffffffffbd2a8983) pathname="/etc/passwd"
