Around oneiric we disabled the use of libbfd in perf.  This was to avoid a
versioned dependency and at the time at least to avoid a licensing issue.
Since then upstream has changed the controls and this no longer works.
Because the tools just drop back to libbfd we have continued to produce
functional binaries.

Following this email are two patches to fix this.  They add a new
control to the upstream code.  This allows us to ensure that libbfd is
turned off.  They additionally flip us over to a renamed control for
the mangler name.

Proposing for bionic.

Applied to bionic/master-next, thanks!
