[PATCH 3/3] perf build: Fix single target build dependency check

From: Jiri Olsa
Date: Mon Jun 22 2015 - 08:51:44 EST

Currently if we build single target like:

$ touch util/map.c && make util/map.o

It will not rebuild util/map.o if it already exists
and util/map.c is modified.

The reason is that the top-level 'Makefile' processes
util/map.o as an implicit rule and if util/map.o exists
make considers the 'util/map.o' target as done and wouldn't
nest into Makefile.perf.

Adding FORCE for '%', because that's what we want to nest
into Makefile.perf for any target.

Adding Makefile into phony targets, because make tries to
rebuilt it and it's also resolved as '%' target.
