Clang doesn't produce this warning:

https://clang.llvm.org/docs/DiagnosticsReference.html#wredundant-decls
"-Wredundant-decls
This diagnostic flag exists for GCC compatibility, and has no effect
in Clang."

Thus, this change doesn't affect clang. (When building the kernel objtool
compiles OK).

But, compilation with clang fails compiling perf with:

CC util/string.o
../lib/string.c:99:8: error: attribute declaration must precede definition [-Werror,-Wignored-attributes]
size_t __weak strlcpy(char *dest, const char *src, size_t size)
^
../../tools/include/linux/compiler.h:66:34: note: expanded from macro '__weak'

^
/usr/include/bits/string_fortified.h:151:8: note: previous definition is here
__NTH (strlcpy (char *__restrict __dest, const char *__restrict __src,
^
1 error generated.

This warning could be disabled with this:

diff --git tools/lib/string.c tools/lib/string.c

If this is acceptable I will resend v2 with this.
