I also see the error with the latest gcc master branch. The code is
harmless, but maybe the warning is useful in other places, so here's one
way to fix it.

Subject: [PATCH] objtool, perf: Fix GCC 8 -Wrestrict error

Starting with recent GCC 8 builds, objtool and perf fail to build with
the following error:

../str_error_r.c: In function ‘str_error_r’:
../str_error_r.c:25:3: error: passing argument 1 to restrict-qualified parameter aliases with argument 5 [-Werror=restrict]
snprintf(buf, buflen, "INTERNAL ERROR: strerror_r(%d, %p, %zd)=%d", errnum, buf, buflen, err);

The code seems harmless, but there's probably no benefit in printing the
'buf' pointer in this situation anyway, so just remove it to make GCC
happy.
