perf script python: Add trace_context extension module to sys.modules

In Python3, the result of PyModule_Create (called from
scripts/python/Perf-Trace-Util/Context.c) is not automatically added to
sys.modules.  See: https://bugs.python.org/issue4592

Below is the observed behavior without the fix:

  # ldd /usr/bin/perf | grep -i python
	libpython3.6m.so.1.0 => /usr/lib64/libpython3.6m.so.1.0 (0x00007f8e1dfb2000)

  # perf record /bin/false
  [ perf record: Woken up 1 times to write data ]
  [ perf record: Captured and wrote 0.015 MB perf.data (17 samples) ]

  # perf script -g python | cat
  generated Python script: perf-script.py

  # perf script -s ./perf-script.py
  Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "./perf-script.py", line 18, in <module>
      from perf_trace_context import *
  ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'perf_trace_context'
  Error running python script ./perf-script.py
  #

Committer notes:

To build with python3 use:

  $ make -C tools/perf PYTHON=python3

Use a non-const variable to pass the 'name' arg to
PyImport_AppendInittab(), as python2.6 has that as 'char *', which ends
up trowing this in some environments:
