Introduce --ctl-fd[-ack] options to pass open file descriptors numbers
from command line. Extend perf-stat.txt file with --ctl-fd[-ack] options
description. Document possible usage model introduced by --ctl-fd[-ack]
options by providing example bash shell script.

+Listen on ctl-fd descriptor for command to control measurement ('enable': enable events,
+'disable': disable events). Measurements can be started with events disabled using
