perf tests: Fix tarpkg build test error output redirection

So we need to trow away just stdout, leaving stderr to be caught by
the build tests infrastructure, so that we can see what went wrong
when the tarpkg build test fails:

$ make -C tools/perf build-test
make: Entering directory '/home/acme/git/linux/tools/perf'
- tarpkg: ./tests/perf-targz-src-pkg .
tests/make:302: recipe for target 'tarpkg' failed
make[1]: *** [tarpkg] Error 2
Makefile:102: recipe for target 'build-test' failed
make: *** [build-test] Error 2
make: Leaving directory '/home/acme/git/linux/tools/perf'
$ cat tools/perf/tarpkg
./tests/perf-targz-src-pkg .
PERF_VERSION = 4.5.g05f5ec
PERF_VERSION = 4.5.g05f5ec
In file included from bench/mem-memcpy-x86-64-asm.S:9:0:
bench/../../../arch/x86/lib/memcpy_64.S:5:29: fatal error: asm/cpufeatures.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.
mv: cannot stat ‘bench/.mem-memcpy-x86-64-asm.o.tmp’: No such file or directory
make[5]: *** [bench/mem-memcpy-x86-64-asm.o] Error 1
make[5]: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....
make[4]: *** [bench] Error 2
make[4]: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....
make[3]: *** [perf-in.o] Error 2
make[3]: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....
make[2]: *** [all] Error 2

So the test flow is:

1. Run: 'make -C tools/perf build-test'

2. One of its tests failed, in this case, the 'tarpkg' one

3. Look at what went wrong, by looking at the output of that test, in

Admittedly, this should be shortcircuited to showing what went wrong directly
from the 'make build-test' step, but lets first fix this tarpkg one and the
problem it spotted, which should be fixed by adding some extra file to the
tools/perf/MANIFEST so that detached tarballs continue being self contained and
build successfully.
