The MTE selftests create temporary files in /dev/shm, for later mmap-ing
them. When there is no tmpfs mounted on /dev/shm, or /dev/shm does not
exist in the first place (on minimal filesystems), the error message is
not giving good hints:
    # FAIL: Unable to open temporary file
    # FAIL: memory allocation
    not ok 17 Check initial tags with private mapping, ...

Add a perror() call, that gives both the filename and the actual error
reason, so that users get a chance of correcting that.
