ARC: perf: map generic branches to correct hardware condition
So far we've mapped branches to "ijmp" which also counts conditional branches NOT taken. This makes us different from other architectures such as ARM which seem to be counting only taken branches. So use "ijmptak" hardware condition which only counts (all jump instructions that are taken) 'ijmptak' event is available on both ARCompact and ARCv2 ISA based cores.
