bpf tools: New API to get name from a BPF object
Before this patch there's no way to connect a loaded bpf object to its source file. However, during applying perf's '--filter' to BPF object, without this connection makes things harder, because perf loads all programs together, but '--filter' setting is for each object. The API of bpf_object__open_buffer() is changed to allow passing a name. Fortunately, at this time there's only one user of it (perf test LLVM), so we change it together.
