hw-breakpoints: Use overflow handler instead of the event callback
struct perf_event::event callback was called when a breakpoint triggers. But this is a rather opaque callback, pretty tied-only to the breakpoint API and not really integrated into perf as it triggers even when we don't overflow. We prefer to use overflow_handler() as it fits into the perf events rules, being called only when we overflow.
