perf vendor events intel: Add NO_NMI_WATCHDOG metric constraint

Add NO_NMI_WATCHDOG metric constraint to Page_Walks_Utilization for Sky Lake
and Cascade Lake.

Committer testing:

On a Lenovo T480S, Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-8650U Kaby Lake, that looking at x86's
mapfile.csv file is a:

  $ grep -w skylake tools/perf/pmu-events/arch/x86/mapfile.csv
  GenuineIntel-6-[4589]E,v24,skylake,core
  $

So uses the constraint added in this patch in this file:

  tools/perf/pmu-events/arch/x86/skylake/skl-metrics.json

Before:

  # perf stat -a -M Page_Walks_Utilization sleep 2

  Some events weren't counted. Try disabling the NMI watchdog:
  	echo 0 > /proc/sys/kernel/nmi_watchdog
  	perf stat ...
  	echo 1 > /proc/sys/kernel/nmi_watchdog
  The events in group usually have to be from the same PMU. Try reorganizing the group.
  #

After:

  # perf stat -a -M Page_Walks_Utilization sleep 2
  Splitting metric group Page_Walks_Utilization into standalone metrics.
  Try disabling the NMI watchdog to comply NO_NMI_WATCHDOG metric constraint:
      echo 0 > /proc/sys/kernel/nmi_watchdog
      perf stat ...
      echo 1 > /proc/sys/kernel/nmi_watchdog

Before and after, if we disable the nmi_watchdog we get:

  # echo 0 > /proc/sys/kernel/nmi_watchdog
  # perf stat -a -M Page_Walks_Utilization sleep 2
