perf test: Fix false TEST_OK result for 'perf test hist'

Commit 71d6de64fedd ("perf test: Fix hist testcases when kptr_restrict is on")
solves a double free problem when 'perf test hist' calling
setup_fake_machine(). However, the result is still incorrect. For example:

$ ./perf test -v 'filtering hist entries'
25: Test filtering hist entries :
--- start ---
test child forked, pid 4186
Cannot create kernel maps
test child finished with 0
---- end ----
Test filtering hist entries: Ok

In this case the body of this test is not get executed at all, but the
result is 'Ok'.

Actually, in setup_fake_machine() there's no need to create real kernel
maps. What we want are the fake maps. This patch removes the
machine__create_kernel_maps() in setup_fake_machine(), so it won't be
affected by kptr_restrict setting.

Test result:

$ cat /proc/sys/kernel/kptr_restrict
1
$ ~/perf test -v hist
15: Test matching and linking multiple hists :
--- start ---
test child forked, pid 24031
test child finished with 0
---- end ----
Test matching and linking multiple hists: Ok
