Add utilities to help checking capabilities of the running procss.  Make
perf link with libcap, if it is available. If no libcap-dev[el],
fallback to the geteuid() == 0 test used before.

Committer notes:

  $ perf test python
  18: 'import perf' in python                               : FAILED!
  $ perf test -v python
  Couldn't bump rlimit(MEMLOCK), failures may take place when creating BPF maps, etc
  18: 'import perf' in python                               :
  --- start ---
  test child forked, pid 23288
  Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
  ImportError: /tmp/build/perf/python/perf.so: undefined symbol: cap_get_flag
  test child finished with -1
  ---- end ----
  'import perf' in python: FAILED!
  $

This happens because differently from the perf binary generated with
this patch applied:

  $ ldd /tmp/build/perf/perf | grep libcap
  	libcap.so.2 => /lib64/libcap.so.2 (0x00007f724a4ef000)
  $

The python binding isn't linking with libcap:

  $ ldd /tmp/build/perf/python/perf.so | grep libcap
  $

So add 'cap' to the 'extra_libraries' variable in
tools/perf/util/setup.py, and rebuild:

  $ perf test python
  18: 'import perf' in python                               : Ok
  $

If we explicitely disable libcap it also continues to work:

  $ make NO_LIBCAP=1 -C tools/perf O=/tmp/build/perf install-bin
    $ ldd /tmp/build/perf/perf | grep libcap
  $ ldd /tmp/build/perf/python/perf.so | grep libcap
  $ perf test python
  18: 'import perf' in python                               : Ok
  $
