[httperf] Improving output readability/usability

Just thinking out loud, it would be good if httperf flagged problems
in the test more obviously, so that users would know that there's a
problem with the test.
In particular, if the CPU utilisation is too low, or if there are any
"fd-unavail", "addrunavail", "ftab-full", "other" errors, we know
that there's a client-side problem, and httperf should alert the
user; probably with a big all-caps warning message, and perhaps by
exiting with a non-zero status.
There's a lot more that could be done, of course, but that seems like
a minimal change that would greatly help the tool's usability.
