Subject: [PATCH bpf-next v3] bpftool: fix build failure

When building bpf selftests like
  make -C tools/testing/selftests/bpf -j20
I hit the following errors:
  ...
  GEN      /net-next/tools/testing/selftests/bpf/tools/build/bpftool/Documentation/bpftool-gen.8

I am using:
  -bash-4.4$ rst2man --version
  rst2man (Docutils 0.11 [repository], Python 2.7.5, on linux2)
  -bash-4.4$

The Makefile generated final .rst file (e.g., bpftool-cgroup.rst) looks like
  ...
      ID       AttachType      AttachFlags     Name
  \n SEE ALSO\n========\n\t**bpf**\ (2),\n\t**bpf-helpers**\
  (7),\n\t**bpftool**\ (8),\n\t**bpftool-btf**\
  (8),\n\t**bpftool-feature**\ (8),\n\t**bpftool-gen**\
  (8),\n\t**bpftool-iter**\ (8),\n\t**bpftool-link**\
  (8),\n\t**bpftool-map**\ (8),\n\t**bpftool-net**\
  (8),\n\t**bpftool-perf**\ (8),\n\t**bpftool-prog**\
  (8),\n\t**bpftool-struct_ops**\ (8)\n

The rst2man generated .8 file looks like
Literal block ends without a blank line; unexpected unindent.
 .sp
 n SEEALSOn========nt**bpf**(2),nt**bpf\-helpers**(7),nt**bpftool**(8),nt**bpftool\-btf**(8),nt**
 bpftool\-feature**(8),nt**bpftool\-gen**(8),nt**bpftool\-iter**(8),nt**bpftool\-link**(8),nt**
 bpftool\-map**(8),nt**bpftool\-net**(8),nt**bpftool\-perf**(8),nt**bpftool\-prog**(8),nt**
 bpftool\-struct_ops**(8)n

Looks like that particular version of rst2man prefers to have actual new line
instead of \n.

Since `echo -e` may not be available in some environment, let us use `printf`.
Format string "%b" is used for `printf` to ensure all escape characters are
interpretted properly.
