Subject[PATCH v2] tools lib: Fix builds when glibc contains strlcpy
Date
Disable a couple of compilation warning (which are treated as errors) on
strlcpy definition and declaration, allow users to compile perf and
kernel (objtool).

1. When glibc have strlcpy (such as in ALT Linux since 2004) objtool and
perf build fails with this (in gcc):

In file included from exec-cmd.c:3:
tools/include/linux/string.h:20:15: error: redundant redeclaration of ‘strlcpy’ [-Werror=redundant-decls]
20 | extern size_t strlcpy(char *dest, const char *src, size_t size);

2. Clang ignores `-Wredundant-decls', but produces another warning when
building perf:

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'
# define __weak __attribute__((weak))
/usr/include/bits/string_fortified.h:151:8: note: previous definition is here
__NTH (strlcpy (char *__restrict __dest, const char *__restrict __src,

Fixes: ce99091 ("perf tools: Move strlcpy() from perf to tools/lib/string.c")
Fixes: 0215d59 ("tools lib: Reinstate strlcpy() header guard with __UCLIBC__")
