tools lib bpf: Fix the build by adding a missing stdarg.h include

The libbpf_print_fn_t typedef uses va_list without including the header
where that type is defined, stdarg.h, breaking in places where we're
unlucky for that type not to be already defined by some previously
included header.

Noticed while building on fedora 24 cross building tools/perf to the ARC
architecture using the uClibc C library:

  28 fedora:24-x-ARC-uClibc   : FAIL arc-linux-gcc (ARCompact ISA Linux uClibc toolchain 2017.09-rc2) 7.1.1 20170710
