From: Andi Kleen <ak@linux.intel.com>

pmu.c does a lot of redundant /sys accesses while parsing aliases
and probing for PMUs. On large systems with a lot of PMUs this
can get expensive (>2s):

% time     seconds  usecs/call     calls    errors syscall
------ ----------- ----------- --------- --------- ----------------
 27.25    1.227847           8    160888     16976 openat
 26.42    1.190481           7    164224    164077 stat

Add a cache to remember if specific file names exist or don't
exist, which eliminates most of this overhead.

Also optimize some stat() calls to be slightly cheaper access()

Resulting in:

  0.18    0.004166           2      1851       305 open
  0.08    0.001970           2       829       622 access
