Tested:
$ git checkout -b testing acme/tmp.perf/core
$ make ...
$ perf test 7
7: Simple expression parser                              : FAILED!

$ perf test 7
7: Simple expression parser                              : Ok

I'd prefer we took the libbpf fix as initializing over the top of the
hashmap will leak. This fix is in the tools/perf/util/hashmap.c.

Thanks,
Ian
