musl libc up to 1.2.21 (IIRC) lacks name_to_handle_at and its structs,
then from the one that is in alpine linux 3.10 the error changes to:

CC /tmp/build/perf/util/cloexec.o
util/synthetic-events.c:427:22: error: field 'fh' with variable sized type 'struct file_handle' not at the end of a struct or class is a GNU
extension [-Werror,-Wgnu-variable-sized-type-not-at-end]
struct file_handle fh;
^
1 error generated.

So probably we'll need a feature test to catch this and do some
workaround or disable the feature on such systems, providing some
warning.

I left the container build tests running to see if some other system has
problems with this, perhaps the ones with uCLibc or some older glibc,
we'll see.

So far all the alpine versions failed with the above problems and ALT
Linux p8 and p9 built without problems.
