While working on having PowerTop use libtracevent as a shared object
library, Tzvetomir hit "str_error_r not defined". This was added by commit
c3cec9e68f12d ("tools lib traceevent: Use str_error_r()") because
strerror_r() has two definitions, where one is GNU specific, and the other
is XSI complient. The strerror_r() is in a wrapper str_error_r() to keep the
code from having to worry about which compiler is being used.

The problem is that str_error_r() is external to libtraceevent, and not part
of the library. If it is used as a shared object then the tools using it
will need to define that function. I do not want that function defined in
libtraceevent itself, as it is out of scope for that library.

As there's only a single instance of this call, and its in the traceevent
library's own tep_strerror() function, we can copy what was done in perf,
and create yet another external file that undefs _GNU_SOURCE to use the more
portable version of the function. We don't need to worry about the errors
that strerror_r() returns. If the buffer isn't big enough, we simply
truncate it.

+ *
+ * So, introduce yet another wrapper, str_error_r(), that has the GNU
