Ingo pointed out to me that for the files we copied from the kernel we
better wait for the kernel original files to be changed, when we'll
notice via tools/perf/ and update the copies. The intel
pt decoder still have this check done outside, we need
to do it there, conceptually its the same issue tho.

I'll separate the patch that touches things that are tools/ only and
apply next week, when I get back from vacation time.
