cmn.json contains UTF-8 characters in brief description which
could break the perf build on some distros.

Fix this issue by removing the UTF-8 characters from cmn.json.

without the fix:
$find tools/perf/pmu-events/ -name "*.json" | xargs file -i | grep -v us-ascii
tools/perf/pmu-events/arch/arm64/arm/cmn/sys/cmn.json:                   application/json; charset=utf-8

with the fix:
$file -i tools/perf/pmu-events/arch/arm64/arm/cmn/sys/cmn.json
tools/perf/pmu-events/arch/arm64/arm/cmn/sys/cmn.json: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
