__always_inline can cause build error on musl libc. The fix patch has
submitted but not merged yet[1]. To build perf tool with musl libc,
<linux/stddef.h> inclusion is necessary and it should be included before

from /usr/include/linux/byteorder/little_endian.h:13,
from /usr/include/asm/byteorder.h:23,
from tools/include/uapi/linux/perf_event.h:20,
from arch/arm64/util/../../arm/util/pmu.c:9:

/usr/include/linux/swab.h:171:8: error: unknown type name '__always_inline'
  171 | static __always_inline __u16 __swab16p(const __u16 *p)
      |        ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
