I was just rebasing my syscall table work on top of your perf/core tree.
It looks like that there is a significant difference compared to linux
master tree.

With f704ef44602fbf403e6722c7ed13f62d17e8cb20 ("s390/perf: add support for
perf_regs and libdw"), Heiko introduced a change in the Makefile.config:

--- a/tools/perf/Makefile.config
+++ b/tools/perf/Makefile.config
@@ -53,6 +53,10 @@ ifeq ($(SRCARCH),arm64)
LIBUNWIND_LIBS = -lunwind -lunwind-aarch64
endif

+ifeq ($(ARCH),s390)
+ NO_PERF_REGS := 0
+endif
+
ifeq ($(NO_PERF_REGS),0)

The CFLAGS actually should applied to the s390 block and not in the x86
block. Somehow this got messed up with git cherryp-pick / am. So actually,
this should go into the section above:

diff --git a/tools/perf/Makefile.config b/tools/perf/Makefile.config
index ed65e82..0833d9f 100644
--- a/tools/perf/Makefile.config
+++ b/tools/perf/Makefile.config
@@ -55,6 +55,7 @@ endif

ifeq ($(ARCH),s390)
NO_PERF_REGS := 0
+ CFLAGS += -fPIC
endif

ifeq ($(NO_PERF_REGS),0)
