The 'if' keyword is a define that expands to complex code when
CONFIG_PROFILE_ALL_BRANCHES is selected, which causes a 'perf test LLVM'
failure like:

  $ ./perf test LLVM
  35: LLVM search and compile                    :
  35.1: Basic BPF llvm compile                    : Ok
  35.2: kbuild searching                          : Ok
  35.3: Compile source for BPF prologue generation: FAILED!
  35.4: Compile source for BPF relocation         : Skip

The only affected test case is bpf-script-test-prologue.c
because it uses kernel headers and has 'if' inside.

This patch undefines 'if' to make it passes perf test.

More detailed analysis from a message in this thread, also by Wang:

The problem is caused by following relocation information:

  $ readelf -a ./llvmsubtest3

So I think the failure is because you enabled CONFIG_PROFILE_ALL_BRANCHES.

I can reproduce your buggy result by selecting
CONFIG_PROFILE_ALL_BRANCHES in my kbuild:

  $ ./perf test LLVM
  35: LLVM search and compile                    :
  35.1: Basic BPF llvm compile                    : Ok
  35.2: kbuild searching                          : Ok
  35.3: Compile source for BPF prologue generation: FAILED!
  35.4: Compile source for BPF relocation         : Skip

Simply undef CONFIG_PROFILE_ALL_BRANCHES in clang opts not working
because it is introduced by "#include <uapi/linux/fs.h>", which override
cmdline options. So I think the best way is to undefine 'if' inside BPF
script.
