The idea is to move the re-usable code in libraries, so that other
tools than perf can use it as well.

Hrrr. I see it as a first move, later the rest of the code can be
moved the same way.
Now it seems that moving all from util/ at once is too much. How do
you see it happening?

Note: moving some code in the perf source is hairy enough (cf. the
simplicity of the Makefiles ;-) and so I do not want to re-do it all
over again too many times.

Thx for looking!
