Subject[PATCH] libbpf: Fix readelf output parsing for Fedora
Fedora binutils has been patched to show "other info" for a symbol at the
end of the line. This was done in order to support unmaintained scripts
that would break with the extra info. [1]

[1] https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/binutils/c/b8265c46f7ddae23a792ee8306fbaaeacba83bf8

This in turn has been done to fix the build of ruby, because of checksec.
[2] Thanks Michael Ellerman for the pointer.

As libbpf Makefile is not unmaintained, we can simply deal with either
output format, by just removing the "other info" field, as it always comes
inside brackets.
