perf test: Add libbpf relocation checker

There's a bug in LLVM that it can generate unneeded relocation
information. See [1] and [2]. Libbpf should check the target section of
a relocation symbol.

This patch adds a testcase which references a global variable (BPF
doesn't support global variables). Before fixing libbpf, the new test
case can be loaded into kernel, the global variable acts like the first
map. It is incorrect.

Result:

# ~/perf test BPF
37: Test BPF filter :
37.1: Test basic BPF filtering : Ok
37.2: Test BPF prologue generation : Ok
37.3: Test BPF relocation checker : FAILED!
