Subject: [PATCH 6/7] perf util: Hint missing file when tool tips fail to load

From: David Carrillo-Cisneros <davidcc@...gle.com>

Besides memory allocation failure, tips.txt may fail to load because the
file is not found (a more likely cause).

Communicate that to the user in tips failure warning.
