Merge commits 'ca6a42586fae' and 'c286c419c784' into perf/urgent
Pick up these two commits from Arnaldo's perf/core tree: ca6a42586fae: perf tools: Emit clearer message for sys_perf_event_open ENOENT return c286c419c784: perf tools: Fixup exit path when not able to open events As they are really fixes we want to have sooner than laer.
