Even with this patch applied, as a stopgap solution to allow me to build
a full featured tool on f27, I get this leftover:

  LINK     /tmp/build/perf/perf
/usr/bin/ld: /tmp/build/perf/libperf.a(libperf-in.o): relocation R_X86_64_32S against symbol `inat_primary_table' can not be used when making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC
/usr/bin/ld: final link failed: Nonrepresentable section on output
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
