perf stat: Fallback to user only counters when perf_event_paranoid > 1

After 0161028b ("perf/core: Change the default paranoia level to 2")
'perf stat' fails for users without CAP_SYS_ADMIN, so just use
'perf_evsel__fallback()' to have the same behaviour as 'perf record',
i.e. set perf_event_attr.exclude_kernel to 1.

Now:

  [acme@jouet linux]$ perf stat usleep 1

   Performance counter stats for 'usleep 1':

                 0      context-switches:u   #   0.000 K/sec
