perf probe: Add variable filter support

Add filters support for available variable list.

Default filter is "!__k???tab_*&!__crc_*" for filtering out
automatically generated symbols.

The format of filter rule is "[!]GLOBPATTERN", so you can use wild
cards. If the filter rule starts with '!', matched variables are filter
out.

e.g.:
# perf probe -V schedule --externs --filter=cpu*
Available variables at schedule
@<schedule+0>
cpumask_var_t cpu_callout_mask
cpumask_var_t cpu_core_map
cpumask_var_t cpu_isolated_map
cpumask_var_t cpu_sibling_map
int cpu_number
long unsigned int* cpu_bit_bitmap
...

This provides some sort of flexibility and robustness to probe point definitions against minor code changes. For example, actual 10th line of schedule() can be moved easily by modifying schedule(), but the same line matching 'rq=cpu_rq*' may still exist in the function.)

+FILTER PATTERN
+--------------
+ The filter pattern is a glob matching pattern(s) to filter variables.
+ In addition, you can use "!" for specifying filter-out rule. You also can give several rules combined with "&" or "|", and fold those rules as one rule by using "(" ")".
+
+e.g.
+ With --filter "foo* | bar*", perf probe -V shows variables which start with "foo" or "bar".
+ With --filter "!foo* & *bar", perf probe -V shows variables which don't start with "foo" and end with "bar", like "fizzbar". But "foobar" is filtered out.
