[Buildroot] [PATCH v2] package/perf: fix build failures with high 'make -j' values

The 'perf' Makefile is flaky on some kernel versions. It will still parallelize
the build even with 'make -j1' because it explicitly invokes a sub-make with
the correct flags. But the top-level make is not smart enough to handle large
'-j' values.

v2:
  - Use $(MAKE1) instead of appending '-j1' to PERF_MAKE_FLAGS.
