perf test shell: Add test using probe:vfs_getname and verifying results

This test uses the 'perf test shell' library to add probe:vfs_getname to the
system then use it with 'perf record' using 'touch' to write to a temp file,
then checks that that was captured by the vfs_getname probe in the generated
perf.data file, with the temp file name as the pathname argument.

Using it:

# perf test "Use vfs_getname"
60: Use vfs_getname probe to get syscall args filenames: Ok
# perf test -v "Use vfs_getname"
60: Use vfs_getname probe to get syscall args filenames:
--- start ---
test child forked, pid 16414
Added new event:
probe:vfs_getname (on getname_flags:72 with pathname=result->name:string)

You can now use it in all perf tools, such as:

perf record -e probe:vfs_getname -aR sleep 1

Recording open file:
[ perf record: Woken up 1 times to write data ]
[ perf record: Captured and wrote 0.022 MB /tmp/vaca.perf.data.QZsn7 (13 samples) ]
Looking at perf.data file for vfs_getname records for the file we touched:
touch 16421 [002] 1255152.879561: probe:vfs_getname: (ffffffffa626e608) pathname="/tmp/vaca.l10SL"
test child finished with 0
---- end ----
Use vfs_getname probe to get syscall args filenames: Ok
