Given a performance metric type, pmTypeStr produces a terse ASCII
equivalent, appropriate for use in error and diagnostic messages.
The pmTypeStr_r function does the same, but stores the result in a
user-supplied buffer buf of length buflen, which should have room for
at least 20 bytes.
The value for type is typically extracted from a pmDesc structure,
following a call to pmLookupDesc(3) for a particular performance
Examples are 32 (for type equals PM_TYPE_32), U64 (for type equals
PM_TYPE_U64), STRING (for type equals PM_TYPE_STRING), etc.
