[PATCH] perf symbols: Define STT_GNU_IFUNC for glibc 2.9 and older.

From: Vinson Lee
Date: Mon Feb 09 2015 - 19:32:16 EST

From: Vinson Lee <vlee@xxxxxxxxxxx>

The token STT_GNU_IFUNC is not available with glibc 2.9 and older.
Define this token if it is not already defined.

This patch fixes this build errors with older versions of glibc.
