This series of patches adds some simple improvements to the way perf stat
handles PMUs that have multiple instances by:

1. Adding glob-like matching in addition to the prefix-based matching
   introduced previously (patch 1).
2. Adding the ability to recover the PMU names when printing the events
   separately with the --no-merge option (patch 2).
3. Restoring auto-merge for events created by prefix or glob-like match
   (patch 3). Note that this still keeps the behavior that disables
   auto-merging of legacy symbolic events (e.g. cycles).


- Consolidated prefix and glob matching into a single glob match with a
  trailing * to maintain prefix matching and have more consistent behavior.
  E.g., all of these match all the uncore_imc PMUs: imc, imc*, *imc, *imc*


- Updated the documentation to explain prefix and glob matching of PMU
  names, and event auto-merging.
- Added sample output to the third patch.
