[PATCH] [perf/core branch] perf coresight: Fix ARM builds caused by misplaced __printf

Trailing __printf attributes work for function declarations, but not
definitions.  This patch fixes arm32/64 builds by placing __printf
before the declarator.  Otherwise this happens:

arch/arm64/util/../../arm/util/cs-etm.c:586:1: error: attributes should be specified before the declarator in a function definition
 static int cs_device__print_file(const char *name, const char *fmt, ...) __printf(2, 3)
arch/arm64/util/../../arm/util/cs-etm.c: In function ‘cs_etm_set_drv_config’:
arch/arm64/util/../../arm/util/cs-etm.c:610:8: error: implicit declaration of function ‘cs_device__print_file’ [-Werror=implicit-function-declaration]
  ret = cs_device__print_file(enable_sink, "%d", 1);
arch/arm64/util/../../arm/util/cs-etm.c:610:2: error: nested extern declaration of ‘cs_device__print_file’ [-Werror=nested-externs]
  ret = cs_device__print_file(enable_sink, "%d", 1);
At top level:
arch/arm64/util/../../arm/util/cs-etm.c:566:14: error: ‘cs_device__open_file’ defined but not used [-Werror=unused-function]
 static FILE *cs_device__open_file(const char *name)
cc1: all warnings being treated as errors
