linuxtools, oprofile: Improve error message when opcontrol returns a non-zero error code
Add extra verbiage to give a clue as to what might have gone wrong if opcontrol returns a non-zero exit status, particularly for the case when /usr/bin/consolehelper is not installed on the system (e.g. consolehelper is not in the SuSE distro). Signed-off-by: Corey Ashford <>
