perf build: Introduce FEATURES_DUMP make variable
Introducing FEATURES_DUMP make variable to provide features detection dump file and bypass the feature detection. The intention is to use this during build tests to skip repeated features detection, like: Get feature dump static build into /tmp/fd file: $ make feature-dump FEATURE_DUMP_COPY=/tmp/fd LDFLAGS=-static BUILD: Doing 'make -j4' parallel build Auto-detecting system features: ... dwarf: [ OFF ] SNIP FEATURE-DUMP file copied into /tmp/fd Use /tmp/fd to build perf: $ make FEATURES_DUMP=/tmp/fd LDFLAGS=-static $ file perf perf: ELF 64-bit LSB executable, x86-64, version 1 (GNU/Linux), statically linked, for ...
