perf build: Introduce FEATURES_DUMP make variable (2016-01-15 16:32:00 -0300)

perf tools improvements and fixes:

User visible bug fixes:

- Fix reading of build-id from vDSO (Ben Hutchings)

- Fix processing samples for guests, noticed with 'perf kvm',
but noticeable as well via other tools, such as 'perf top'
(Ravi Bangoria)

Build infrastructure:

- Add feature-dump target and FEATURES_DUMP make variable, to
allow reusing the feature detection results among multiple
tools/ living codebases, such as perf and lib/bpf (Jiri Olsa)

- 'make -C tools/perf build-test' improvements, making it more
paralelizable and allowing building it outside of the source
tree, using O= (Wang Nan)
