perf test attr: Fix ignored test case result

Command perf test -v 16 (Setup struct perf_event_attr test) always
reports success even if the test case fails. It works correctly if you
also specify -F (for don't fork).

root@s35lp76 perf]# ./perf test -v 16
15: Setup struct perf_event_attr :
--- start ---
running './tests/attr/test-record-no-delay'
[ perf record: Woken up 1 times to write data ]
[ perf record: Captured and wrote 0.002 MB /tmp/tmp4E1h7R/perf.data
(1 samples) ]
expected task=0, got 1
expected precise_ip=0, got 3
expected wakeup_events=1, got 0
FAILED './tests/attr/test-record-no-delay' - match failure
test child finished with 0
---- end ----
Setup struct perf_event_attr: Ok

The reason for the wrong error reporting is the return value of the
system() library call. It is called in run_dir() file tests/attr.c and
returns the exit status, in above case 0xff00.

This value is given as parameter to the exit() function which can only
handle values 0-0xff.

The child process terminates with exit value of 0 and the parent does
not detect any error.

This patch corrects the error reporting and prints the correct test
