On ubuntu the internal kernel version code is different from what can
be retrived from uname:

 $ uname -r
 4.4.0-47-generic
 $ cat /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build/include/generated/uapi/linux/version.h
 #define LINUX_VERSION_CODE 263192
 #define KERNEL_VERSION(a,b,c) (((a) << 16) + ((b) << 8) + (c))
 $ cat /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build/include/generated/utsrelease.h
 #define UTS_RELEASE "4.4.0-47-generic"
 #define UTS_UBUNTU_RELEASE_ABI 47
 $ cat /proc/version_signature
 Ubuntu 4.4.0-47.68-generic 4.4.24

The macro LINUX_VERSION_CODE is set to 4.4.24 (263192 == 0x40418), but
`uname -r` reports 4.4.0.

This mismatch causes LINUX_VERSION_CODE macro passed to BPF script become
an incorrect value, results in magic failure in BPF loading:

 $ sudo ./buildperf/perf record -e ./tools/perf/tests/bpf-script-example.c ls
 event syntax error: './tools/perf/tests/bpf-script-example.c'
                      \___ Failed to load program for unknown reason

According to Ubuntu document (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/FAQ), the
correct kernel version can be retrived through /proc/version_signature, which
is ubuntu specific.

This patch checks the existance of /proc/version_signature, and returns
version number through parsing this file instead of uname. Version string
is untouched (value returns from uname) because `uname -r` is required
to be consistence with path of kbuild directory in /lib/module.
